A pastor accused of sexually exploiting women at a church he founded is in police custody.

The pastor has been in police custody since last Friday, and police will decide later whether charges will be laid.

Assistant Commissioner of Police Henry Brown told media:

He is currently being interrogated and right now no charges have been laid. We cannot reveal any more information as the matter is now under investigation.

The Fiji Times last Monday interviewed three unnamed women who alleged the pastor had sex with young women in his congregation, who had borne him more than 10 children. The women were alleged to be virgins at the time.

He had told his congregation that it was “the work of the Holy Spirit”. The women also alleged a 13-year-old was also impregnated.

The three unnamed women told the Fiji Times:

It started in 2000, it was so real, we know the movement was really moving in 2000. In 2004, we came in and we felt like a strong power. It had a strong impact. Miracles happened, he lured in women, girls.

We were told, ‘you don’t have to look for jobs because we will provide you jobs here’.

So many things were said but they didn’t come to pass and so many times when it didn’t happen there was always an explanation behind it.

We would go to his room. It would start with a call for us to massage him or he would say that we needed to be redeemed. There were mostly virgins in the congregation.

In the redeeming process, which he says to cleanse us, he would intimately touch us and we thought it was right because he was a man of God.

The kids born from different girls, he calls them the grains.
