More charges have been laid in an increasingly tangled criminal investigation into alleged gang sexual assaults across the GTA.
Two south Korean sisters in their mid-30s were charged over the weekend, joining several male suspects who have also been implicated.
All of the accused are members of a Toronto-based Korean church which can’t be named due to a publication ban.
The Pastor of the church, Jae-Gap Song, has also been charged with sexual assault. His accuser is the wife of one of the six men initially charged.
Defence Lawyer Jacqueline An believes the Pastor is a cult leader, and maintains the accused will be found not guilty.
“There’s compelling evidence coming soon, but he is a leader who is controlling the flock,” she said.
