Court drops sex assault charges against Quiboloy accuser in Hawaii

/ 10:47 AM December 04, 2019

HONOLULU – A judge dismissed criminal sex assault charges against a woman who claimed she was a victim of sexual assault by the leader of a Filipino mega-church Apollo Quiboloy.

Kristina Angeles, who was accused of sexually assaulting a teenage church member five years ago, claimed the accusation was part of a retaliatory campaign to punish and discredit her after she said she fled from abuse by the church led by Quiboloy, powerful pastor. The judge gave prosecutors six months to charge her again if they wish to do so, according to a Hawaii News Now report.


Angeles became a key witness who claims she saw Quiboloy’s church members smuggling money back to the Philippines.
