This has nothing to do with Wang Yi.
It is orchestrated by Sg Indy doing data analytics on suspicion
on who those who has legit biz overseas
conflicting with Sg
and only some names

they have no biz in Sg
so there is no case actually

Can we have the identity of the actual perpetrator behind all these criminals? Surely there must be a warlord or a kingpin behind them, otherwise how was entry into Singapore granted?

I shared my concern in an open letter on 18 May 2023 that my company bank account with OCBC was taken over by someone without my authority and knowledge. Until today, I still have not heard from OCBC how this could have happened.

In light of the seriousness of the billion-dollar money laundering case recently, I beg and urge OCBC to let me know what had happened to the stolen bank account.

Who’s going to benefit from this? PAP of course! Property price went up, COE up, Stamp duty up!

When $2 paid to crane driver and crematorium staff can be caught, how could billion$ laundering activities escape their eyes? PAP would like to cover up this, but because of some other cases, the “fire” burning through the “carpet”.

These 10 China Chinese (even though from various countries) gang members when they go back to China, they won’t see daylight but after some suffering time in lockup, they will be greeted with bullets in the head

China wanted criminals can easily come to Singapore and living a high life….lol.
Our Singapore authorities must be sleeping all these decades.

For money laundering, besides buying pricey properties and vehicles, there could be also a possibility that the criminals will invest huge money in any business in Singapore.

Was it a coincidence that Foreign Minister Wang Yi has just visited Singapore?

As I suspected. The CCP is pressuring the ruling government to arrest these individuals, confiscate their assets for swift repatriation back to the “motherland.” The ruling government has had no issue with money laundering, be they, Indonesian billionaires or the Myanmar junta (And them using Singapore as a place to purchase lethal arms too). What has changed? Obviously, “diplomatic” pressure. Now we will see the wealthy Chinese elite who have fled the Mainland begin the process of leaving, taking their money along with them. The facade of Singapore being a “neutral” country for them to enjoy a luxurious lifestyle has… Read more »

When HDB flats were sold over $million, you know there is definitely money laundering going on.

Only PAP’s greed, unable to see it!
