Controversy rocks church

PASTORS out over $21m debt

THREE church ministers are embroiled in controversy with their employer after they were suspended over their role in a AU$21million debt in Australia. Reverends Sione Pinomi, Viliami Tu’akoi and Matafonua Fotofili have been held responsible for the liquidation of the assets of the Free Wesleyan Church of Tonga in three Australian cities in 2012. Ordered by Australia’s High Court to liquidate its assets and pay off its debts, the church sold properties in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.

These included churches and the homes of its resident ministers. The massive Pulela’a Church in the suburb of Rooty Hill, a replica of the Centenary Church in Nuku’alofa, now houses a centre operated by the Sikh community. But until the church conference in the Tongan capital, Nuku’alofa, in July, nobody had been held accountable for the huge debt and questionable loans involved in the construction of a AU$10million church. Last year, however, after mounting public criticism and questions, church General Secretary Reverend Doctor Tevita Havea led a comprehensive investigation into the FWCC’s Australian circuit.

His investigation completed, the no-nonsense administrative head of the FWCC recommended the ministers return home for counselling and be suspended from pastoral duties. But when the church sat for its annual conference and tried to discuss the issue, Pinomi, Tua’akoi and Fotofili sought an injunction to stop any disciplinary measures. Debate on the issue was suspended after an order from the Tongan Court. Once legal issues were cleared, discussions continued and the church ultimately suspended the three.
