A pastor who helped jailed fung shui guru Peter Chan Chun-chuen to become a Christian admitted yesterday that he molested a 16-year-old girl during two 15-minute attempts to exorcise the devil from her. But Kwun Tong Court heard that the victim, now 25, had forgiven Titus Poon Man-shun and wanted him to lead the prayers at her wedding. Poon, 46, had earlier denied indecently assaulting the girl by fondling her breasts on two occasions in the office of his church in April 2004. He changed his plea to guilty yesterday. But he continued to deny, and was acquitted of, four other charges of indecently assaulting a 25-year-old woman with whom he had previously had an intimate relationship. A source close to the case said that the offences came to light after Poon, who had served the Assemblies of God Wa Wai Church for 16 years, suddenly confessed to the church earlier this year. The court heard that Poon allegedly pushed the 25-year-old woman onto the sofa in his office, lay on top of her, and tried to take off her pants. Lawyer Charles Chan, for Poon, said that when the alleged offences occurred, the pair had an intimate relationship and were flirting with each other. Chan told the court that Poon previously had bodily contact with the victim before the alleged offences. She did not call the police nor did she tell anyone about the earlier contact. Acquitting Poon, Magistrate Don So Man-lung said the pastor might have had a "mistaken impression" that the woman consented to his acts. He called for reports before passing sentence on October 4 on the other charges. Poon was freed on cash bail of HK$10,000 and a HK$10,000 surety. According to earlier reports, Poon helped Chan - now jailed for 12 years for forging a will purportedly left by late billionaire Nina Wang Kung Yu-sum - to become a Christian. Before his trial, Chan, a self-taught geomancer, was baptised at the Crossroad Community Baptist Church in Tsing Yi. He then changed his name from Tony to Peter to reflect his new belief. Chinese-language newspapers reported that after Chan was baptised, he thanked Poon for making him firmly believe in God.
