    Well, he's innocent until proven guilty - till then we should all keep our peace.

    why should you be influenced?
    From my own personal experience, as long as monies is concerned, one shouldn't trust anyone (bankers, lawyers, accountants, etc...), even relatives (siblings, friends, etc..), organisations, or even charities to handle the monies.
    If you need to give, give personally to the one that really need your help and not thru a third party.
    With few exceptions, Mother Theresa got my highest respect. Her only physical possessions are 2 sets of simple white sari-clothing when she left. No assets, no houses, no big car, etc...
    always the Light, .... always.

    To err is human.

    What's sad is that we the public will never get to know all the facts.

    I agree that he's innocent until proven guilty, but doubt if the govt would act without already having compelling evidence at hand of his guilt.

    I think you guys are thinking of the wrong monk... this is the monk with the mercedes...

    and I thought a judge of appeal made a recent statement that people should respect the presumption of innocence (yes, I know his statement was more complicated than that...)

    most are blinded by people with charisma. else, how do you think cults are formed?

    Head of Ren Ci Hospital, the Venerable Shi Ming Yi has been charged with alleged forgery, conspiracy and misuse of funds.

    Venerable Ming Yi, who was also former Ren Ci Chairman, was slapped with 10 charges Tuesday morning.

    The monk faces four charges under the Penal Code involving two counts of alleged criminal breach of trust.

    He also faces one count of alleged forgery for the purpose of cheating and one count of abetment for allegedly falsifying accounts.

    He also faces six charges under the Charities Act for allegedly providing false information.

    Two of his associates Raymong Yeung and Phua Seow Hua were also alleged to have gone into conspiracy with the Venerable and were also charged in court Tuesday.

    Separately, a volunteer from Ren Ci was charged with allegedly possessing some 70 copies of obscene film.
