GLOBAL ONE NEWS—A Filipino evangelist and reportedly good friend of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has been accused of running a “child sex ring” — that’s according to a Hawaii News Now report.
On Oct. 2 the station reported former church member Kristina Angeles alleged Pastor Apollo Quiboloy had sex with her and several minors at his Kingdom of Jesus Christ Church in Hawaii.
Angeles reportedly came to Hawaii on a religious visa in 2014 but ran away because of alleged abuse by Quiboloy, who refers to himself as “the appointed son of God.”
Angeles was accused of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old at the time, but at the hearing on Tuesday, her lawyer said the accusations were lies and retaliation for her running away.
The criminal case against Quiboloy reportedly has been delayed until February to sort out the charges and counter-charges.
Meanwhile, the FBI reportedly had already been investigating Quiboloy for human trafficking and even indicted one of his church officials for trying to smuggle $335,000 out of the U.S.
