Lee Jae-rock, leader of Manmin Central Church, who judges documents shows “divorced” in the sermon, was accused of 42 degrees of sexual harassment and sexual assault against eight victims.

Lee, 75, had “maliciously exploited victims who absolutely believed in their religious authority and sexually harassed or attacked victims repeatedly for 20 years and even sexually assaulted multiple victims at the same time”, according to a press release from Seoul Central District Court.

Read victims had been members of his church since birth or childhood, the document said.

While they were in agreement at the time of their sexual relations with Lee, the court found that his supporters could not resist his progress “because of their absolute belief in the accusation’s insecurity”.

“The victims were in the psychological status where they absolutely could not resist or at least the resistance was very difficult,” said the release.

“Judging from the circumstances, although the accused did not call himself the” holy spirit “or” god “in an official place, in the lesser gathering or personal education session, he had taught the directors and indirectly that he is the Holy Spirit or God. “

Five of the victims had left the church but, in the wake of the # MeToo movement, were encouraged by a second victim to report him.

The court found that it was “sufficiently motivated” to read the influence of the victims as pastors, by “consistently listening to the sermon and following the church diligently” would have believed that he “served the will of God.” [1
