Chief of Intelligence and Investigations, Assistant Commissioner of Police Henry Brown said that at this point in time they are focusing on the criminal elements of the alleged offences.

“There have been questions raised with regards to the church’s registration under the Religious Bodies Act, and while it has been confirmed that it has not been registered, our main focus is the criminal aspect of the claims made against the suspect,” he said.

“As the case is also before the courts there are certain details of the ongoing investigation that cannot be made public until substantial progress has been made.”
