Who is City Harvest's Wahju Hanafi?

Indonesian businessman Wahju Hanafi, the other beneficiary of funds allegedly diverted from City Harvest Church (CHC) to further Sun Ho's music career, is a man with multiple links to the church, its founder Kong Hee and affiliated companies.

The prosecution's charges against Kong and four other senior CHC members yesterday said that alleged dishonest transfers of $11 million from CHC's building fund to PT The First National Glassware between Oct 6, 2008 and June 19, 2009 were meant to fund Ms Ho's career and "for the purpose of providing funds to one Wahju Hanafi".

Mr Hanafi joined the church in the early 1990s, Kong wrote in a 2008 article in CHC newsletter Harvest Times. In that article, Kong also mentions that Mr Hanafi bought a major glass factory in Indonesia in early 2007, tripling his personal net worth.
Back in 1986, he founded Super Value Stores, a general merchandise retail chain which now has 14 branches and more than 1,100 employees, according to its corporate website. Mr Hanafi is listed as its managing director.
