It seems that KAPA Community Ministry International members are still not giving up in pushing the government to make their religious group operational again.
A donor of KAPA identified to be Rhema International Livelihood Foundation Inc. filed charges against the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and President Rodrigo Duterte on June 21.
Rhema International Livelihood Foundation Inc. or Cirfund is composed of KAPA donors.
They demanded 3 billion pesos in damages, SEC Chairman Emilio Aquino’s dismissal from office and also President Duterte’s impeachment.
The said KAPA donor argued that President Duterte should be impeached for interfering with a religious organization.
Rhema also said that SEC only followed Duterte’s opinion without hearing the side of KAPA.
“Let all private respondents—Rodrigo R. Duterte and Chairman Emilio B. Aquino, chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)—pay the compensatory damages amounting to P3,000,000,000.00 for destroying Cirfund, an online platform project of Rhema International Livelihood Foundation Inc. and be dismissed from office and the President be submitted for an impeachment proceedings for culpable violation of Art. II Sec. 6 and Art. III known as the Bill of Rights of the Philippine Constitution.” the petition reads.
Several weeks ago President Duterte ordered the closure of KAPA and they also ordered to search for Pastor Joel Apolinario’s location.
Meanwhile, KAPA insisted that they’re not doing any illegal activities and only helping their 5-M members to escape poverty.
Senator Antonio Trillanes IV also urged KAPA members before to file charges against President Duterte for violating their religious freedom.
