    Singaporean found guilty of fraud in Fiji

    A SINGAPOREAN man has been found guilty of attempting to use a forged bank draft to transfer 50 million euros (S$88.12 million) into a business account in Suva, Fiji.

    According to media reports, Singaporean Poh Chen Shui arrived in Fiji in January 2009 and started a business with two Fijians - former policeman Rajnesh Singh and Atunaisa Veitata - called Full Creation Investments Limited.


    On Jan 7, 2009, the trio opened a bank account in their company's name with 250 Fiji dollars (S$175).

    Thereafter, Veitata attempted to deposit a forged bank draft with a written value of 50 million euros into the company account.

    The bank later realised the draft was fake.


    Media reports also stated that Singh intended to purchase 5,700 acres of land belonging to the Anglican Church.

    He had sent the church a photocopy of the forged bank draft as proof of his wealth.

    The attempted transaction was voided on discovery of the fraud.

    S’porean found guilty by Fijian court


    By Alicia Wong – February 6th, 2011

    A Singaporean has been found guilty by the Fijian High Court of attempting to use a forged bank draft to transfer 50 million euros (S$88 million) into a business account in Suva, Fiji.

    Quoting media reports, The Sunday Times (ST) said Singaporean Poh Chen Shui arrived in Fiji in January 2009 and started a business with two Fijians, called Full Creation Investments Limited.


    On Jan 7 2009, the trio – Poh, former policeman Rajnesh Singh and Atunaisa Veitata – opened a bank account in their company’s name with 250 Fiji dollars.

    Veitata then attempted to deposit a forged bank draft with a written value of 50 million euros into the company account but the bank realised it was fake.

    Singh also sent the Anglican Church a photocopy of the forged bank draft as proof of his wealth, as he wanted to buy 5,700 acres of land belonging to the church, media reports said. The attempted transaction was voided when the fraud was discovered.

    The three men were charged with one count each of possession of a forged document, of uttering a forged document and of demanding property by a forged document, said ST.

    Poh was found guilty of the first two charges and acquitted of the third. The other two men were found guilty of all three charges.

    According to Fijian law, each count carries a maximum of 14 years in jail. The trio will sentenced on Tuesday.
