Former PRC officer claims he was forced to confess by Singapore police
Posted by temasektimes on September 19, 2012
50 year old Li Huabo, who is now a Singapore Permanent Resident claimed that he was told that he would be sent back to China and could face capital punishment there if he didn’t confess to the crime.
Li cited police investigators as saying “if you don’t want to admit, you will be in trouble”. He added that he did not commit any offence in China and was framed by those ‘jealous’ of him.
According to court documents, Li was a section director at Poyang County Finance Bureau in Jiangxi Province from 2006 to 2011.
He left China for Canada with his family in 2011, but eventually settled down in Singapore after he parked some $1.5 million dollars with various banks here.
Due to Singapore’s ultra-liberal and pro-China immigration policies, a large number of PRC nationals have been given Singapore PR and citizenship easily in recent years, some of whom include crooks like Li Huabo.
