MANILA - Kingdom of Jesus Christ founder Apollo Quiboloy on Friday "vehemently denied" the allegation of a former church follower that he was running a "child sex ring."
In a video posted on Youtube, Quiboloy said he will be taking legal actions against Kristine Angeles, whose counsel made the allegation in a court case where she is being accused by a female church member of sexual assault.
"I vehemently deny the totally fabricated, false accusation that I am running a child sex ring. I am so angry about this, the accusation does not only violate my person, but the whole kingdom ministry which I lead. And this accusation is not only for me but for the whole 7 million kingdom nation that I lead," he said.
"And I have been faithful to the almighty father for all of these years. Pagkatapos ikaw lang na babae ka ang papatulan ko? Hindi ko nga pinatulan yung Amerikana kong sweetheart dahil sa pagsunod ko sa kalooban ng ama, ikaw pa, tingnan mo yang mukha mo."
"I will take appropriate legal actions against those responsible for these false and damaging accusations," he added.
Quiboloy also read the supposed handwritten confession letters of Angeles, who he said admitted to being a lesbian.
"Puro handwriting ni Kristina Angeles yan. Sa committee hearing inamin niya ulit na siya ay isang certified tomboy at maraming karelasyon dito," he said.
"May sex ring dito pero sa kaniya ang sex ring at ito ay malalaman natin sa korte."
Quiboloy's counsel, Israelito Torreon earlier denied these allegations, saying that a rival church organization helping Angeles was behind the false claims.
A Hawaii News Now report has said the FBI is investigating the Quiboloy church in Waipahu for alleged human trafficking, which Torreon denied and dismissed as baseless.
