For holding service despite Covid-19 restrictions, Christ Embassy Sydney pastor, Marvin Osaghae, and 30 adult members of his church have been fined a whooping sum of $35,000.
Fed-up neighbours of Chris Oyakhilome’s Christ Embassy church in Sydney call upon the Australian police on Sunday, August 22, after members gathered for another service despite COVID-19 lockdown.
When police arrived, there were 60 devotees in attendance, half of them children.
The thirty adults in attendance were arrested and fined $1000 each.
The church was also fined $5000, making it a total of $35,000.
Police shut the church when they arrived.
“Churches are there to profess the message of hope and love and to have those people endanger communities … is extraordinary,” Elliott told Sydney radio 2GB on Monday.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian called the gathering a blatant contradiction of rules that keep people out of hospital.
NSW Police Deputy Commissioner Gary Worboys said he hoped followers would reflect on the risk they’d exposed themselves and their children to.
“I would hope that that would be the last time that we see this kind of activity from this group of people.”
In April this year, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s TV channel, LoveWorld, was fined £125,000 for breaching the UK’s broadcasting code by spreading misinformation about COVID-19.
