Alleged gang rapists free on bail • Tuesday March 23, 2010

Three alleged gang rapists are now free on bail, but not soon enough according to their lawyer.

Toronto’s Hyung Jun Ha, 26, and Sang Cheol Lee, 37, as well as Jong Il Lee, 33, of Orangeville, have been charged with various counts of gang sexual assault, forcible confinement, threatening death, administering a drug for sex, assault and making child pornography. One of the four female victims is a minor.

Police say the suspects got to know the victims through a Korean community church in North Toronto.

Journalist Jay Jung, a reporter for Korea Times Daily, began investigating the church after members, including the suspects, recently broke away from the congregation.

“They felt Pastor Song had done something wrong and it was not right,” Jung said.

Jung is referring to Pastor Jae-Gap Song, a man ex-church members say tried to wield too much control over a congregation of 50 women and 10 men.

Global News has also learned church members at one time all lived together in an apartment in West Toronto.

“I will call him a fanatical leader,” said Shoub. “This is what this case is all about.”
