KAPA Community Ministry International founder Pastor Joel Apolinario admitted in a radio interview that it’s almost impossible for him to return the money of the people who donated or invested to his religious group.
In an interview with DZBB, Apolinario blamed that the order of the Court of Appeals (COA) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to freeze his assets worth P100-M and several luxury vehicles.
However, if the claims of SEC are valid, KAPA already has gotten P50-B from its members.
But where is the remaining 49.9-B? That is what the SEC is looking.
Apolinario also added that all of his businesses already stopped operating because of the court order even his fishpond.
“Kung hindi kami pagbigyan nang pagkakataon na makapag-operate muli ‘yong aming ministry talagang sasabihin na namin na parang suntok sa buwan na ‘yon dahil hindi ko na makukuha rin yong mga naibigay ko sa mga tao,” Apolinario said.
He also insisted that what they’re doing is legal.
Meanwhile, the government encouraged the people to file a complaint against Apolinario so they can recover the money they invested in the religious group.
However, several loyalists of Apolinario said that they’re going to push the government to return KAPA and even planning to support their pastor in the 2022 presidential elections.
