Ke Hadapan AG’s Chambers Putrajaya : JoLo’s Accomplice Found Guilty On All Four Charges.
SINGAPORE: Yeo Jiawei found guilty Wed (Dec 21)
involvement in money laundering linked to (1MDB)
Yeo worked for BSI from end-2009 until mid-2014. bank’s clients included 1MDB entities, JoLo JoLo accused of embezzling billions from 1MDB person of interest in S’pore’s ongoing investigation Yeo’s 12-day trial revealed he pocketed US$5m in secret deal with 1MDB Swampillai said he and Yeo hungry for cut of US$2.3b deal with Brazen Sky and Bridge Partners in 2012.
So they brokered the deal without the bank’s knowledge, with the help of their colleague Yak Yew Chee, a senior private banker who personally handled the accounts of Mr Low and entities linked to 1MDB.
COVERING UP A COMPLEX WEB OF DEALINGS
Yeo and Swampillai pulled off secret deal with Samuel Goh Yeo’s intermediary to distance himself from illicit deal.
Swampillai and Goh gave evidence about meeting with Yeo in March he told them to “play poker” with (CAD) so investigators would not uncover evidence After Yeo left BSI 2014, he went to work for JoLo Yeo amassed S$24 million in 15 months following departure from BSI.

instructed to feign ignorance about dealings guilty of telling Pinto to destroy evidence asking colleague to keep mum For each of four charges Yeo faces up to seven years’ jail and a fine. faces another seven counts: money laundering, cheating, forgery next year
My comments : This is Singapore ok. They do not mess around. Yeo Jia Wei has been found guilty.
He can be sentenced seven years for each of the four charges. That is 28 years if he is sentenced to maximums and sentences to run consequently. They will use this as a tool to extract more cooperation and more information from Yeo. Even ask him to turn State witness against JoLo. The noose is tightening in Singapore. JoLo is certainly in their gunsights. If they have got THREE of the supporting villains (Yvonne, Eric Tan and Yeo so far) for sure the Singaporeans are going after JoLo.
Do you know the net result of all this? JoLo’s situation is now getting more and more precarious.
His yacht was anchored in Phuket, Thailand just about when Xavier Justo was being released from a Thai prison. Obviously he is not afraid to be in Thailand. The family also has long ‘business’ connections with Phuket. They have contacts there. But Xavier Justo has been released and is on his way home to Switzerland now.
So now it is JoLo who is in the spot. A “prime minister is in deep shit” because of JoLo. Will JoLo be allowed to be arrested and dragged to a Court in Singapore or Los Angeles or Switzerland or anywhere to spill the beans? Wouldnt that be terribly embarrassing?
Worse, what if JoLo decides to cut a deal and turn State witness against MO1 and such? For immunity or for a lesser sentence?
These are possibilities. It is no more a charmed life. Life has become a curse.
