Jade buyout being investigated

Posted by jtsmyth8 on April 21, 2008

4 organisations are now involved in the widening official probe into the aborted takeover of Singapore-listed Jade Technologies.

The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (Acra) have recently announced that they are also looking into the fiasco.

They have joined efforts by two other regulatory and enforcement bodies – the Commercial Affairs Department (CAD), the white-collar crime unit, and the Securities Industry Council (SIC), which polices takeovers.

Earlier this month, major Jade shareholder Anthony Soh pulled the plug on a proposed $117 million buyout of the company after admitting he had insufficient funds. (story)

Pedophile sentenced to 22 yrs

Posted by jtsmyth8 on January 16, 2008

I hope this sick bastard gets his ding dong chopped off. He’s going to find out how criminals treat pedophiles. They are considered the lowest of the low. The scum of the earth. Poor kids. Probably never gonna trust anyone ever again.

“A 54 yr old pedophile methodically preyed on two eight-year-old boys, gaining their trust with gifts of food and toys, and even an excursion to the zoo. Machine operator Soh Beng Huat, alias Teo Beng Huat, then lured them to secluded spots and sexually assaulted them.

On a number of occasions, he even took along with him an MP4 digital player or a portable camcorder with a tripod to record the lewd acts.” (story)
