Everything About the 10 Foreigners Living in GCBs / Condos Who Are Involved in $1 Billion Forgery & Money Laundering


Did you know that Singapore had a live-action version of Money Heist recently?

If you didn’t, fret not. Goody Feed’s here to tell you all about it. Ten foreigners were arrested for forgery and money laundering, with many more still wanted by the police.

Here’s everything you need to know.

10 Foreigners Arrested for Forgery, Money Laundering and Resisting Arrest; 8 More Still Wanted

On Tuesday (15 Aug), ten foreigners were arrested in an islandwide raid involving more than 400 officers.

Yes, you read that right. 400 officers to arrest ten individuals.

These individuals, suspected to be connected, hailed from various countries, including Cyprus, Turkey, China and Cambodia.

What can we say except cheers to diversity? Melting pot of cultures, salad bowl, etc.

They were charged in Court on Wednesday (16 Aug) for their suspected involvement in forgery, money laundering, and resisting arrest.

These individuals were also found to possess foreign passports from a laundry list of countries. Of course, this isn’t a problem unless the passport’s place of issuance does not correspond to where you’re supposed to be from.

Our Money Heist crew made it a problem. They had foreign passports from China, Cambodia, Vanuatu, St Kitts, Nevis, and the Dominican Republic.

If you don’t recognise half of the places here, it’s okay. You just need to know that China issued most of the foreign passports found in the individuals’ possession.

Aside from these ten foreign nationals, 12 others are currently assisting with investigations and another eight are still wanted by the police.

The remaining eight are probably thinking: If you really want me right, you should chase after me…

Forgery for the purpose of cheating may land you in jail for ten years and fined; using a forged document may land you in jail for four years, fined, or both.

Individuals may be jailed for up to 10 years for money laundering, fined up to $500,000, or both.

For resisting arrest, individuals may be jailed for up to a year, fined, or both.

$1 Billion Worth of Cash and Assets Seized from the 10 Foreigners

Aside from arresting these individuals, officers also seized quite a number of cash and assets from the ten foreign nationals.

Well, “a number” is an understatement. Up to $1 billion worth of cash and assets were seized by the police.

Money Heist Singapore is coming to theatres near you.

What was seized includes 94 properties and 50 vehicles worth more than $815 million, more than 35 related bank accounts worth more than $110 million, and $23 million worth of cash.

Oh, and other ornaments, liquor and wine bottles, luxury bags and watches, jewellery, and gold bars.

Macam atas karang guni.

The police also seized 11 documents with information on the arrested individuals’ virtual assets.

Hiding in Plain Sight: Arrested in their GCBs and Condominiums

That’s not all for this islandwide raid—it involved much more action.

Officers from the Commercial Affairs Department, the Criminal Investigation Department, the Special Operations Command and the Police Intelligence Department conducted the raids simultaneously across the island.

Assembling Avengers ah?


The ten individuals were arrested in their own homes.

Yes, in the comfort of their Good Class Bungalows (GCBs) and condominiums—it’s straight out of a movie. Perhaps Jack Neo should get in on this.

Since there’s nothing else to do in Singapore, maybe you should visit some of the places these individuals were arrested in.

This includes GCBs along Ewart Park, Bishopsgate, Pearl Island at Sentosa Cove, Nassim Road, Third Avenue, Lewis Road and condominiums along Leonie Hill Road, Paterson Hill, and Tomlinson Road; fortunately or not, Ridout Road isn’t part of the list.

Maybe you’ll find some leftover cash or luxury bags around the residences.


Ma, I got you this Chanel bag!

Fight or Flight: Man Allegedly Attempted Resisting Arrest by Jumping Off GCB Balcony

We won’t bombard you with the nitty-gritty details of what every arrested individual said when charged in Court; it’s always the same old story: admit nothing, deny everything.

More stubborn than your ex-girlfriend.

However, a particular individual’s arrest catches one’s eye. While others were charged with money laundering or forgery, one 40-year-old man got the cherry on top: an additional charge of resisting lawful apprehension, which just means resisting arrest lah.

The 40-year-old Cypriot national, Su Haijin, was charged with one count of resisting arrest at his Ewart Park GCB.

According to the police, Su had jumped out of his second-floor balcony after police identified themselves outside his bedroom.

This isn’t just Money Heist anymore; it’s starting to take a Mission Impossible twist…

Police eventually found the 40-year-old hiding in a drain. Macam Pennywise.


Anyway, Su’s decision wasn’t the brightest—the jump left his hands and legs fractured.

Now want to resist arrest, also cannot resist arrest.

Su is currently receiving treatment in the hospital and had to appear in Court via video link from his ward.

Yet, according to Su, this is not the whole story. The 40-year-old denied the police’s evidence and shared that he only jumped because he thought whoever was outside his bedroom door wanted to kill him.

Apparently, he thought it was the boyfriend of one of his past “sneaky links” outside his door, threatening to kill him.

We’ll give credit where credit’s due: Su has lived quite an exciting life. Unfortunately for him, since he has been further remanded and moved to a secure ward in Changi General Hospital, it doesn’t seem like he can be out gallivanting any more lah. 

ORD loh, even if Su doesn’t want to.

All 10 cases have been adjourned to next week, so until then, we can only see how it goes. Stay tuned for the second episode of Money Heist Singapore.

With any hope, the remaining eight wanted individuals will be apprehended soon.
