Manalo kin held to cover up INC scam?
AN Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) minister has alleged that some of the church’s ministers and even family members of Executive Minister Eduardo Manalo were being held inside a building at the INC compound in Tandang Sora, Quezon City.
INC minister Roel Rosal, also expelled by the Church, told reporters Thursday that at least 10 ministers were under “house arrest,” supposedly to stop them from blowing the lid off alleged corruption in the politically influential church.
He accused auditor Jun Santos and his staff of dipping their hands into the “abuloy” (donations) for the INC.
He said Manalo’s family were detained because of supposed family rivalry and “revenge.”
“Paggasta ng abuloy ng Iglesia sa mga sasakyan nilang maluhong pamumuhay,” said Rosal.
