Approximately four years ago, Pastor Sunday Adelaja was accused of fraud by the Ukraine government in relation to a capital venture company (King's Capital) that went broke as a result of the global economic meltdown. In addition to several members of the Church who have been arrested and unjustly imprisoned without a hearing for refusing to give false evidence against Pastor Sunday, three others were arrested this week. After a year of pre-trials preceding over three years of investigations, the Ukrainian government is either unwilling or unable to proceed to trial (due to lack of evidence, even after 4 years of investigation). Having failed to take this case to trial, the Ukrainian government has now decided to charge Pastor Sunday Adelaja with founding, managing and leading a crime syndicate. On Tuesday August 21, 2012, Pastor Sunday was informed by the Ukraine government that these new charges will be brought against him and as a result have been ordered to come in on Tuesday, August 28, 2012 with the intent of having him placed under arrest. There is no merit in this accusation and the evidence attests that: Pastor Sunday who had no role or interest and was never a part of this business organization was charged along with the owners of the bankrupt company simply because one principal was a member of the Embassy of God Church. The next election is in a couple months: it is a systemic effort to discredit, persecute and incriminate Pastor Sunday from his work as the spiritual leader of the Embassy of God in Ukraine in order to dissuade votes in favor of the opposition. A Global Call to Action This is a textbook case of xenophobia and discrimination on religious ground against the largest protestant Church in Ukraine and racism towards its founding Pastor; with the latter being a matter of concern even during the recently concluded European cup where anyone of a darker skin pigmentation was cautioned about visiting Ukraine. Global intervention is needed because all evidence indicates that Pastor Sunday Adelaja will not be given a fair trial (if any) because of his race and faith. Bring this matter to the attention of your government leaders and have them contact the Ukrainian government directly on this matter. Specifically, direct calls to the President, Prime Minister and Foreign Minister of Ukraine. A direct appeal to the President of Ukraine, Victor Yanukovych, the Prime Minister and Foreign Affair ministry could stop this injustice against the Senior Pastor of the Embassy of God Church, Sunday Adelaja. REMEMBER that time is of extreme importance because on Tuesday, August 28, 2012, Pastor Sunday Adelaja is required to report to the police base where all the other accused individuals in this case were arrested and detained without any trial. Sign our online petition TODAY (and encourage others to do the same) to ensure that Pastor Sunday is not imprisoned without any true evidence of wrong doing or better yet, drop these baseless charges against him. Thank you Pastor Bruce Bhebhe
