Another identity of Fujian suspect exposed: Su Haijin was director of No Signboard Holdings

SINGAPORE: On Wednesday (16 Aug), the Singapore Police Force (SPF) announced a raid involving over 400 officers across the island in a crackdown on money laundering and forgery activities, resulting in the historic seizure of assets amounting to roughly S$1 billion (US$736 million), which shocked the entire Island.

Ten individuals, with diverse nationalities but a common Fujian heritage, were arrested and charged in court on Wednesday night with forgery, money laundering, and resisting arrest.

Among them, there is a wide range of nationalities represented, including Cypriot, Turkish, Chinese, Cambodian, and Ni-Vanuatu.

Additionally, twelve individuals are aiding with current investigations, and eight are on the police’s wanted list.

Earlier, an X (formerly Twitter) post revealed that large sums of money were funnelled into Citibank accounts by dozens of Fujianese individuals using underground banks.

It was said that the Commercial Affairs Department (CAD) had established a covert task force more than three months prior, with a primary focus on the activities of Chinese nationals from Fujian province.

Exploring the multifaceted business portfolio and lavish lifestyle of Su Haijin

As reported by The Straits Times, Su Haijin, a 40-year-old individual of Cypriot nationality and one of the ten individuals apprehended during Tuesday’s operation, formerly served as a director at No Signboard Holdings, a restaurant operator.

Su Haijin held this directorial position at the company from October 2021 to June 2022, as indicated by a search conducted with the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (Acra).

The company’s annual report for the year 2021, submitted in October of that year, documented Su Haijin as possessing a 20 percent ownership stake in the company, according to the coverage in ST.

The report further disclosed that he willingly resigned from his role as a non-executive director to concentrate on other commitments.

A spokesperson from No Signboard Holdings conveyed to The Straits Times on Thursday that Su Haijin held a non-executive directorship within the company.

The spokesperson clarified that he was not actively engaged in the company’s day-to-day operations, nor did he partake in any board meetings or decision-making processes. During that period, the company had an additional five directors.

The Acra search on Su revealed that he had the highest number of appointments among the ten individuals taken into custody during the operation.

Su Haijin also held positions as both a shareholder and director at Aiqinhai Investment, a privately held company limited by shares, and maintained identical roles at Daily Glory International, a mobile phone dealership.

Younger brother of another arrested, Su Baolin

Furthermore, according to a report from Chinese media outlet Lianhe Zaobao, it was revealed that Su Haijin holds positions as both a shareholder and director at Yihao Cyber Technologies Pte. Ltd.

Su Haijin paid S$36.37 million for a pair of adjacent bungalows in Sentosa Cove

The Business Times, back in August 2021, detailed Su Haijin’s acquisition of these adjoining bungalows, solidifying his opulent lifestyle. These properties, nestled in the exclusive enclave of Sentosa Cove, were reported to have cost him a combined total of $36.37 million.

The post disclosed that Su resides in an upscale mansion within Ewart Park in Bukit Timah and is the owner of a Rolls-Royce, which serves as his means of transportation.

Allegedly, the market value of Su’s mansion exceeds S$80 million. Given his foreign status, it is speculated that a rental arrangement is more plausible than an outright purchase.

According to the ST, Su Haijin made his residence near Holland Road in 2021, with the monthly rent reportedly amounting to around $80,000 during that period, as per an anonymous family insider.

This same source also revealed that in 2017, Su began renting a unit within the Silversea condominium located in Marine Parade. Two years later, he, along with his wife and three children – two sons and a daughter – moved into a duplex penthouse at Gramercy Park on Grange Road.

Notably, the yacht’s recent recorded position was within the prestigious confines of One 15 Marina, an esteemed marina and yacht club nestled within the exclusive Sentosa Cove of Singapore.

Su’s high-life in Singapore

Reportedly, Su Haijin actively engages in social activities, having purportedly sponsored the Singapore President’s Charity Golf Tournament.

He also offers support to various associations, and in return, he has been honoured with the title of honorary chairman.

Su was charged with one count of resisting arrest, in which the police statement indicated that during the arrest on Tuesday, officers outside Su’s bedroom identified themselves and instructed him to open the door.

Su then allegedly leapt from the second-floor balcony of his GCB in Ewart Park and was later found by the police hiding in a drain.

The jump resulted in fractures to his hands and legs, and he was taken to the hospital while conscious.

Su Baolin reportedly identified as a shareholder of construction firm

In addition to Su Haijin, other arrested suspects, as revealed by Lianhe Zaobao, were found to hold positions in one or two companies each, indicative of their broad involvement in various business ventures.

This includes Su Baolin, Su Haijin’s elder brother. Gutzy earlier reported that Su Baolin, a 41-year-old Cambodian national, reportedly paid S$39.33 million for a Sentosa Cove bungalow with a sea-facing view in April 2021.

He is reportedly a shareholder of construction firm Sentosa Project.

According to a police statement, Su was arrested on Tuesday at a Good Class Bungalow (GCB) located on Nassim Road, during which he was purportedly discovered with a foreign passport suspected to have been issued by China.
