Pastor Apollo Quiboloy is facing sex-trafficking charges in the U.S. On Thursday, U.S. prosecutors released the 74-page indictment where Quiboloy was charged, along with other church officials.
A GMA News report indicated that there were other two church administrators based in the U.S. who were also allegedly running such operations.
The latest indictment, where Quiboloy was included, was an expansion of a previous indictment against nine defendants who were allegedly involved in a scheme that would bring church members into the U.S. using visas that were fraudulently obtained and were forced to ask for donations, the beneficiary of which was also a bogus charity, Philstar reported.

In the latest indictment, Quiboloy and five more were added as defendants. Three of the new defendants have already been arrested by authorities and three more, including Quiboloy, were believed by prosecutors to be in the Philippines.
According to the indictment, Quiboloy, plus two more defendants, allegedly recruited 12 to 25-year-old females and become pastorals or personal assistants.
It also alleged that these women were tasked to prepare meals for the pastor, give him massages, clean his residence and have intercourse with him during "night duty," according to Rappler.

Apollo Carreon Quiboloy is a church leader in the Philippines. He is the leader of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. He has made claims that he is "The Appointed Son of God" as well as being "The Owner of the Universe".
Senator Manny Pacquiao made good on his threat to file the criminal case of libel against Pastor Apollo Quiboloy. Earlier, Pastor Quiboloy, the founder and leader of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ church, allegedly said that Sen. Pacquiao is behind the anomalous P3.5 billion Sarangani Sports Complex project. The senator vehemently denied the allegations, saying that Pastor Quiboloy deliberately misled the people by showing old photos of a building built in 1996 at a time when the legislator was still a kid. Sen. Manny said the project he helped within Sarangani is different and costs around P300 to P500 million, which is way below what the Pastor claimed.
Sen. Manny Pacquiao has signified that he will be filing a case against Pastor Apollo Quiboloy. He said in an interview that Quiboloy is simply making an issue that he does not even know about. The boxing champ added that the pastor must not meddle with the affairs of the government and that he should just focus on his disciples. Pacquiao added that he plans to file a case against Quiboloy because what he did is something that he must be held responsible for.
