Everyone including Christians have the right to appeal against any court
sentence. In this case, I feel that Kong Hee has the right to appeal if he
thinks that he does not deserve the 8 year jail sentence meted to him by the

truly a huge disgrace to the Christian community for your unrepentant heart
