Former members of a Korean doomsday cult are sounding a warning that the religious sect is turning its focus to Pacific nations. Melanie Earley investigates.

Undeterred by public scrutiny in Aotearoa, a secretive religious group is expanding into the Pacific Islands and “targeting” Pasifika people from faith backgrounds.

A group of former Shincheonji members said there was immediate concern at news of the cult’s fresh outreach programmes in Samoa and the Cook Islands.

“We’ve been disappointed and concerned about Shincheonji’s attempts to recruit in Samoa and elsewhere,” said a spokesperson for the group What is Shincheonji, which is a collection of New Zealand-based former members.
