Alleged cult leader transferred millions, court told

ABC News, Australia/December 3, 2010

A court has heard alleged cult leader Rocco Leo transferred more than $5.5 million between three bank accounts over just a few hours last May.

More freezing orders have been imposed on Leo and his church Agape Ministries, restricting access to bank funds.

Leo and nine others, including associates and businesses connected with the church, are being sued by the deputy tax commissioner in the Adelaide District Court.

Documents claim the defendants owe more than $4 million in unpaid tax.

The tax department has been granted access to all bank records and has now successfully applied for individual freezing orders on each of the defendants.

Bank documents detailed the millions transferred in just a few hours by the alleged cult leader.
