The 6 City Harvest Church leaders are facing trial for misusing $24 million of church building funds to buy sham bonds in two companies, Xtron Productions and Firna, which were set up by close friends of the 6 leaders, in a finances circulation technique called round tripping in an attempt to hide the loss of funds from auditors.
