City Harvest Church founder and leading pastor Kong Hee has announced that he will be appealing both against the conviction and the eight-year prison sentence he was handed down for misusing close to $35-million in church donations for the popstar career of his wife.
"Whilst I respect the court's decision, there are points which appear to be erroneous and warrant appeal. I will therefore be preparing to file an appeal against both my conviction and sentence. Earlier today, I was informed that the prosecution has also filed an appeal against the sentence imposed by the court," Kong told supporters in a Facebook message late last week.

While most of the Islamic State terrorist organization's foreign fighters come from Muslim backgrounds, a terrorism expert said Tuesday that jihadi recruits hailing from Christian families are among the most ferocious fighters the militant group has to offer.
