ONWARD CHRISTIAN SOLDIERS

MORE to report on Goldhawk’s favourite preacher, Brendan Hade, who is involved in an ongoing legal dispute with Bank of Scotland, which registered a €18.7m judgment against him and two other trustees of their Victory Christian Fellowship church
over unpaid property loans. The bank is now seeking to execute that judgment and refutes Hade’s claim that VCF has effectively ceased activities. The bank also has questions about how Hade and the trustees are able to continue to fund the costs of litigation
with the bank, which now involves an appeal to the Supreme
Court against the €18.7m judgment. Last month, the High Court
ruled that the trustees would have to disclose details of their assets and income. Last year, the bank complained to Hade and
the two other trustees – his wife, Sheila Hade, and Gerry Byrne – that a statement of affairs produced by VCF was incomplete and apparently omitted details concerning VCF’s subscriptions and membership. A solicitor for the trustees replied that “our clients are not in receipt of any subscriptions or membership revenues…[VCF] has ceased all activities.” But the bank later pointed out that there had been various advertisements for apparent VCF gatherings on Facebook. Brendan Hade said in an
affidavit that in relation to VCF’s website and Facebook page, neither he nor his fellow trustees had control of these and
that other individuals had administrator access to VCF’s website
and social networking sites. He also said that some VCF members had made personal donations to him to fund the litigation involving the bank. The High Court’s Judge Aileen Donnelly ordered that the trustees fully disclose the church’s income and assets as well as details of how it was funding the ongoing litigation. She also pointed out that there was no evidence that the trustees had asked their former congregants to take down the website or remove the Facebook page. Meanwhile, the appeal against the €18.7m judgment is currently before the courts. The trustees are claiming that the real reason the bank decided to call in its loans (which were secured against three VCF properties
in Dublin) was that in 2013 its accountant, without authorisation, had informed the lender that the Revenue had withdrawn the church’s charitable status. The trustees said that the passing on of this information was a breach of confi dence and that the bank knew that this information should not have been disclosed. The High Court didn’t accept this argument.
