Pastor pleads not guilty to molesting girl
August 20, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Venije Singkoh

A Daly City man who serves as pastor of a San Francisco church pleaded not guilty Tuesday to three counts of child molestation for allegedly placing a girl on his lap and kissing her improperly.

Venije Cornelis Singkoh, 69, waived his right to a speedy prosecution in the case and returns to court Sept. 24 for a preliminary hearing on the evidence. Meanwhile, he remains in custody on $300,000 bail.

Daly City police arrested Singkoh earlier this month at home after an investigation into the allegations.

Singkoh is a pastor at the Indonesian Pentecostal Foursquare Church at 378 18th Ave. in San Francisco’s Richmond District.

Between Jan. 1, 2013, and Feb. 7, 2014, the girl told her parents, Singkoh touched her improperly. A church meeting was called with the parents, Singkoh and several church members to confront him. Singkoh denied the claims and said it was an “accident,” District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.

Child Protective Services was notified and it in turn contacted Daly City police.
