Holders of Dominican passports deported to Cambodia by Singapore in $3b money laundering case


Source: DominicaNewsOnline.Com- Two holders of Dominican passports have been deported to Cambodia by Singapore in a massive $3b money laundering case, which is being reported as the biggest of its kind in the history of Singapore.

Reports from Singapore indicate that Lin Baoying and Chen Qingyuan are Chinese nationals who at the time of their arrest were holders of Dominican passports. A third Chinese national, who was also deported, held a passport from St Kitts and Nevis.

In addition to her Dominican passport, Lin Baoying held Cambodian and Turkish passports, while Chen Qingyuan also held a Chinese passport.

The Business Times, a financial newspaper in Singapore reported that Lin Boaying paid agents US$290,000 to obtain her Cambodian and Dominican passports.

“She had managed to obtain the Dominica passport despite not having visited the country before,” the newspaper reported. “As she was able to obtain these passports despite not being in the country, there was a possibility that she could do so again.”

The three were sent to Cambodia on Friday, June 15, The Straits Times, a newspaper in Singapore, has reported. They were barred from returning to Singapore by the country’s Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA).

The three are among ten people who were convicted in the money laundering scheme. Chen was arrested on August 15, 2023, and was charged with offenses related to his possession of benefits from criminal conduct including cash, bank accounts, cars, and cryptocurrency worth more than $8 million.

Boaying, 44 and the only woman involved in the matter, was also arrested on August 15, 2023, and was convicted of two counts of fraudulently using a forged document and two counts of money laundering.

The court ordered the forfeiture of about S$154 million of her seized assets, which included 13 bank accounts, five properties, cryptocurrencies, two cars, and memberships at two country clubs in Singapore.

According to reports, the three were escorted directly from prison to the airport for deportation to Cambodia and were not permitted to return to their residences to collect their belongings.

The ICA said it is now impossible for the deportees to return to Singapore since its technology enables it to detect deported individuals even if they attempt to re-enter the country using another identity or passport.

  1. @Shameful Government, they are in the news just like Antigua and St. Kitts……by the way this is old news that has been around for about a year now. The culprits also had passports from other countries including TURKEY and ST. KITTS.

  2. @Pat…thought you were going to fall for it and assume I am saying Antigua is always in the news when no country was ever mentioned in my original comment.
