SINGAPORE: A MAGNET FOR CASH FROM POLITICALLY CONNECTED CAMBODIANS

On 19 May, an article from RFA says that an analysis of Singaporean corporate and property records has borne out a claim: Cambodia’s politically powerful and those close to them do have enormous amounts of wealth stashed in Singapore.  RFA has identified Singaporean assets controlled by politically-connected Cambodians worth in excess of $230 million.  Among the owners of those assets are relatives of Prime Minister Hun Sen, an individual subject to US sanctions, a former cabinet minister, as well as the wives, children and siblings of generals, senators, and secretaries of state.  It is said that this will be the first in a series of stories exploring those assets, how they were acquired, what they are used for, and what they can tell us about the relationship between money and power in Phnom Penh.
