Senate probe vs religious group ni Quiboloy, inihihirit

MANILA, Philippines – Naghain ng resolusyon si Senador Risa Hontiveros nitong Lunes, Disyembre 11 na naglalayong imbestigahan ang religious leader na si Apollo Quiboloy at ang paraan niya nang pagpapatakbo ng grupong Kingdom of Jesus Christ (KOJC).

Partikular na tinukoy ni Hontiveros sa kanyang Senate Resolution 884, ang iniulat na “large-scale human trafficking, rape, sexual abuse and violence, and child abuse of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ (KOJC) under its leader Apollo Quiboloy.”

Inilahad din ni Hontiveros ang ulat nang umano’y mahigpit na patakaran sa mga tagasunod nito, sa pamamagitan ng “brainwashing and psychological manipulation and constant threat of eternal damnation.”

“Quiboloy allegedly maintains a stable of women called ‘pastorals’ who occupy a prestigious position in the organization because they are tasked to perform special personal tasks and errands for him,” saad ng senador.

“According to informants, the pastorals are divided into the ‘inner circle’ and the ‘inner of the innermost circle,’ with the latter category being made to perform other personal tasks such s washing his clothes, bathing him, cleaning his bedroom and massaging him,” dagdag pa niya.

“Some of these pastorals were still minors during their recruitment and during the period they were made to perform sexual services… Apollo Quiboloy allegedly coerces the members of the organization… to perform exploitative acts, such as begging in the streets and soliciting money from strangers,” ani Hontiveros.

Batay sa salaysay ng mga source ni Hontiveros, ang mga hindi sumusunod sa patakaran ng relihiyon ay ipinapahiya at pinarurusahan.

Si Quiboloy ay na-indict din ng Federal Grand Jury sa California noong 2021 dahil sa reklamong “conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking by force, fraud and coercion.”

“Considering that these crimes were committed within the territorial jurisdiction of the Philippines and considering that crimes are taking place even at present as Quiboloy remains free to run the operations of KOJC, it is imperative that an investigation be undertaken with dispatch,” ayon kay Hontiveros.
