New York State has withdrawn permission for Olivet University, an evangelical institution, to operate in the state, Newsweek reported. The state’s education department said that Olivet is still largely run by a group of David Jang disciples linked to a 2018 criminal conspiracy. Jang, a Korean American cleric, founded Olivet in 2000. His followers are being investigated by the Department of Homeland Security about whether the university was part of a scheme to launder money for criminals in China and the United States.

Olivet released a statement that said the university “ended a good, 10-year run in the state of New York with the conclusion of our temporary permission to operate by the New York Board of Regents. We remain humbly grateful for this wonderful opportunity to carry out our mission to educate students for Christian mission in New York State.”
