Receivers not legal in Jesus's name, court told

RECEIVERS appointed to take possession of three properties of a non-denominational church over unpaid debts of €18m have been told their actions are "not legal in the name of Jesus".

The receivers have been appointed by Bank of Scotland over three of Victory Christian Fellowship's Dublin properties.

It is claimed church members have ignored High Court orders not to obstruct efforts to take possession of the premises.

Chartered accountants Paul McCann and Patrick Dillon, who were appointed receivers, claim they are being prevented from taking possession of the properties at Kilmacud House, Upper Stillorgan; Westland Row, Dublin; and Firhouse Road, Tallaght.

Ms Justice Mary Laffoy yesterday made orders requiring several church members to attend court next Wednesday after being told the congregation have been told the receiver's actions are "not legal in the name of Jesus".
