YOU would think a hard-up Christian radio station which rents studios from the Anglican Bishop of Hongkong and Macau would be granted a few weeks' grace when it came to paying the rent. Well, think again. For in an unholy row, Trans-World Radio Station (Far East) is being sued by the bishop, Reverend Peter Kwong Kong-Kit, for owed rent and rates. And if payment is not made by Friday week, the Christians, who spread the word of God over the airwaves to China, fear they will have to leave their home. In a Supreme Court writ issued under the name of the Bishop of Victoria, Mr Kwong's previous title, the station is being sued for $127,900 plus costs for breach of a tenancy agreement. It is alleged the company owes two months' rent and three months' rates for the offices it rents in On Lee Building, Nathan Road. Mr Kwong could not be contacted last night for comment. A spokesperson for the Anglican Diocese of Hongkong, Reverend Ian Lam, said he had not heard about the legal action until the writ had gone to the Supreme Court. He said the On Lee Building was held by the bishop as a trustee, but he did not know the financial details. He said the bishop, one of the first group of Hongkong advisers to be appointed by China, had authorised Harriman Realty Company to handle the property. It was up to that company what action it took. He said there seemed to have been ''some kind of misunderstanding'', but he had been instructed by the bishop not to comment. A spokeswoman for Harriman Realty said the company was ''not in a position to release any information''. She said the case was being handled by a solicitor, and that the agency had been instructed by the bishop to say nothing. She said it was the responsibility of the agent to act according to the instructions of the owner - in this case the bishop. The writ was ''nothing personal'', and ''a normal, standard procedure''. Despite the threat of eviction, staff at the radio station continue to praise the bishop. ''I'm sure it wasn't the bishop's idea. I don't think he knew what the agent was doing,'' said staff member Mr Samuel Ho. Mr Ho said he had not been able to talk to the bishop because the church leader was ''very busy''. ''The bishop supports the organisation. Sometimes we share visions,'' he said. One employee said a cheque had been sent on Thursday to cover the March rental, but the writ had arrived in the afternoon. According to one member of the station, the court action means it will be be evicted unless it can come up with the money, while another said: ''God will help us deal with the situation.''
