Wives of 10 arrested in money laundering case among suspects linked to probe
Investigators are having a closer look at the people linked to the foreigners arrested here in a money laundering probe, with the police digging into assets they own and businesses they are involved in.
The Ministry of Law had sent a notice on Aug 27 to dealers of precious metals and stones to check against their records for possible suspicious transactions by these 24 individuals.
In a subsequent hearing in court, the prosecution revealed that the suspects include wives and relatives of the 10 accused.
