Charities should be more transparent.
Wasn't it lately that I read a news article on the law requiring frequent checks on charities?
" The venerable's lawyer, Andre Yap, said: "Our position would be that everything that was done was for a legitimate cause. It is not a case where a person has basically taken the money and used it to buy a house or buy shares for himself...
"It's a question of corporate governance; it's a question of how you treat certain things in the accounts and what should be done.
"Some of the charges relate to matters which the previous board of Ren Ci had discussed at board meetings and had even sanctioned. So we don't believe that there's a criminal element to many of these charges."
always the Light, .... always.
he wouldnt have be charged if the evidence was scanty...
not for a high profile case like this where obviously he would get good legal representation.
its true that perhaps we should not judge until the final outcome, but this is an internet forum end of the day and theres never any rule against speculation.
this isnt the only case tho of monks living the high life. doubt it will be the last too... so many times been to funeral see all the monks come to pray.. then see what car they drive off in.. more often than not is big bmw or mercedes benz...
