Funny Business in Hong Kong

Funny Business in Hong Kong

Sarawak's timber has been shipped out over the past 30 years - has the money been shipped in to Taib-linked bank accounts?

MACC Investigators have a headache in store for them when they turn to Hong Kong, such is the tangled web of Taib family shareholdings. 

However, delving into these business concerns will throw up some intriguing coincidences, as Sarawak Report’s own researches can already demonstrate.

We can also demonstrate how a number of Taib-linked companies are now owned or being managed out of the BVI by one of the Philippine’s top bankers Franciso C Sebastian, who started his career as a Financial Advisor in Hong Kong.  We suggest that investigations in Hong Kong hold the key to tracing the early development of Taib’s international web of global investments as the profits from felling Sarawak’s rainforests escaped abroad.

The Shea Kin Kwok connection

The first job that needs doing is to interview Mr Shea Kin Kwok.  Shea was long regarded as a mysterious businessman with several links to Taib family companies.  However, Sarawak Report has now confirmed that he was in fact the paid secretary to Taib’s brother Onn Mahmud.  His job was to manage Achi Jaya company affairs out of Hong Kong, in particular to control the Achi Jaya linked companies into which payments were being made.

 
 

The Hong Kong Company Register shows a number of companies, including Regent Star listed under the ownership of Shea Kin Kwok and a fellow employee Kho Eng Beng

This activity became public in April 2007, when the shipping kickbacks scandal broke after the Japanese tax authorities prosecuted timber exporters for not declaring millions of dollars paid to Regent Star Company Ltd, which was one of the companies directed by Shea Kin Kwok out of his office in Connaught Road.  The Japanese timber exporters explained they had been forced to pay the kickbacks to Regent Star in order to get their shipping licences.   

The links were glaring.  Taib had put his brother Onn’s Achi Jaya Corporation in charge of issuing export licences for timber from Sarawak and another company Regent Star, run by Onn’s secretary, was receiving the kickbacks in Hong Kong. 

Web of companies

Regent Star had been  incorporated in 1983 (the same year Achi Jaya was set up by Onn in Sarawak). Regent Star was 50% owned by Shea and 50% by another employee, Kho Eng Beng and we have identified a number of other related Hong Kong companies owned and directed by the same pair:  Grand Will Limited (incorporated 1984), Grand Shine Trading (incorporated 1983), Herolite investment (incorporated 1983), Natalite (incorporated 1983) and Wittaker Company Ltd (incorporated 1985). Shea also became listed as one of the major shareholders in Sarawak Oil Palm, a privatised State venture which inherited huge tracts of state lands.

Richfold - 4,998 shares for Onn and just 1 share for secretary Shea Kin Kwok!

Another company, Richfold Investment Ltd, was especially interesting, because it was incorporated on the same day and registered at the same office as Regent Star and again Shea was a Director and Shareholder.  But the other shareholder in this particular company was Onn Mahmud himself.  Shea had just one share in the company…. and Onn had the remaining 49,998 !

So many coincidences

After the kickback scandal broke an awful lot of coincidences occurred.  Grand Will Limited and Regent Star Company Ltd were both dissolved on the same day, 9th November 2007.  On the other hand, Richfold stayed active for another few months, until it too was closed 9th May 2008. 

Meanwhile, coincidentally, Grand Will and Regent Star had both re-opened on the very same day just a month later, under different Directors and Shareholders.  Sarawak Report notes that also on that very same day, 21st December 2007, a brand new company was opened in Hong Kong called TESS Limited HK. 

TESS Limited HK has a very similar name to TESS Investments (BVI), the company based at PO Box 438in the British Virgin Islands that has been funding Taib family investments in the UK through Ridgeford Properites Ltd.

TESS Investments BVI, the company that has been giving millions of pounds in interest free loans to Ridgeford Properties

Indeed, TESS Investments (BVI) was incorporated 23rd October 1996 just the day before the multi-million pound Ridgeford Properties was incorporated in the UK.  Ridgeford is run by Sean Murray, Taib’s son-in-law, who has numerous involvements in Taib family property companies worldwide and it has benefited for years from multi-million, interest-free, open-ended loans from TESS Investments (BVI). 

Is the Astar Properties which has investments in the Taib family's Adelaide Hilton the same Astar Properites based in the BVI which started Ridgeford Properties in the UK?

Another company registered at the same PO BOX 438 address in BVI is the original shareholder of Ridgeford Properties, Astar Properties, which was itself also incorporated in October 1996, just days before TESS Investments and Ridgeford Properties.  In yet another coincidental twist, Astar Properties is also the name of one of the shareholders of the Taib family company in Australia, Sitehost Pty, which owns the Adelaide Hilton (although this Astar Properties is misleadingly registered at a non-existent address in Guernsey).

CMS connection

It is worth pointing out yet another related coincidence, which is that the Taib family company CMS owns a trust Company which is also based at the very same PO Box 438 address in BVI as TESS Investments (BVI) and Astar Properties - an address managed by the trustee company Equity Trust.

Furthermore, at the risk of boggling readers’ minds with coincidences, we would further draw their attention to the ownership of the new Hong Kong company, TESS Limited HK, that we mentioned opened on the same day that Regent Star Limited and Grand Will Limited re-opened, 21st December 2007.

The registered shareholder of TESS Limited HK is a company called TOA Services (BVI).  Our investigations show, however, that there is no actual company of that name in BVI.  On the other hand, the address listed for the non-existent TOA Services (BVI) is the same PO Box 438address shared by CMS, TESS Investments and Astar Properties!

TESS Limited HK shares the same address as TESS Investments BVI, which funds Ridgeford Properties

Questions to answer

Therefore, since Taib Mahmud is currently making statements and denials, Sarawak Report asks if he is prepared to categorically deny that there is any path or connection between money taken in by Richfold Investments Ltd in Hong Kong and money paid out to Ridgeford Properties Ltd in the United Kingdom via PO Box 438 BVI? 

Is he also prepared to deny that the vast kickbacks handed to his brother Onn’s secretary through Regent Star Limited did not find its way into the sister company Richfold Investments, directly owned by Onn? 

One of Ridgeford Properties' investments is this prestige building next to the Bank of England

Finally, is he prepared to explain to the State Assembly in detail why he thinks it is fitting to hand control over shipping licences to his own brother’s company and then arrogantly deny all wrong-doing when millions in shipping kickbacks are discovered to have been extracted by another company owned by his brother’s secretary? 

Surely Taib’s dismissive denials can only increase suspicion over his guilt?  If he was genuinely free from involvement and concerned about corruption he would long since have rushed to investigate the matter fully and openly (and also have resigned, which is the only honourable course after allowing such appalling graft to take place).

Other companies owned by Shea and a second tangled web that also leads to the BVI

Shea Kin Kwok was originally the Director and 50% Shareholder (once more together with Kho Eng Beng) of two separate Mahmud-linked companies, Grand Shine Trading and Herolite Investment Limited, which both hold 5% of the shares in Achi Jaya, Onn Mahmud’s vast shipping and plantation company.  Likewise they owned a sister company Natalite. All of these companies are based in Hong Kong.

Taib proxy? Onn Mahmud was involved in numerous business dealings with the Taibs in the 1980s, but has since fallen out of favour

Given that Sarawak Report has learnt from insiders that Onn’s cut from the businesses that he ran as a nominee for his brother, the Chief Minister Taib Mahmud, was 10%, we require some more denials to avoid reaching some obvious conclusions.  Can Taib deny that the 10% of Achi Jaya that belonged to Grand Shine and Herolite and were put in the hands of Onn’s employees, were not indeed his brother’s 10% of the company ?  Can he deny that the remaining 90% of the company secretly belongs to him?

Interestingly, in 2004 a series of fiendish manoeuvres were embarked upon to remove these two companies from the formal ownership of Shea and Kho and to place them safely and anonymously in the hands of bankers, yet again in the tax free haven of the British Virgin Islands.

Our researches have traced how Grand Shine and Herolite were first taken over by the companies Yield Court and Citifull Company respectively.  Yield Court in turn belonged to Cooperheat Overseas Services Ltd.  All three of these companies are yet in turn owned by two shareholder companies called Bona Co Ltd and Fidico Ltd and every one of these five companies are managed by Intercorp Services, 11th Floor Dah Sing Life Building, 99 Voeux Rd, Hong Kong.

The shareholders of Bona Co and Fidico turn out to be yet another two companies called Penryn Ltd and Peckham Ltd (both incorporated 12th June 1984 and also managed by Intercorp Services). 

Penryn Ltd is a shareholder of Peckam Ltd and Pekham Ltd is a shareholder of Penryn Ltd.

However, the other shareholder of both companies is yet another company Integrated Financial Services, which is again also based at the same office as Intercorp Services in Hong Kong.

Integrated Financial Services is in fact the owner of Intercorp and is therefore now the ultimate owner of Grand Shine and Herolite, which used to belong to Onn’s office managers and which still own a 10% share of Achi Jaya Holdings. 

Francisco C Sebastian, Chairman of First Metro in the Philippines

So who owns Integrated Financial Services?  Company records show that the shareholders are Integrated Financial Services Holdings, based in the BVI and also Francisco C Sebastian a top banker in a Philippines, who originally worked as a financial advisor in Hong Kong.

By yet another coincidence of names, Integrated Financial Services also owned Richford Management Ltd, another Hong Kong Company.  Sarawak Report would like to know whether Mr Sebastian has indeed bought up the Achi Jaya shares by this circuitous route, or was he just acting as an advisor and trustee for Onn Mahmud as he attempted to secretly move his shares out of the hands of his secretary and into a safe tax haven?

Time for transparency

Given the glaring potential for the abuse of political influence surrounding the roles and activities of the Achi Jaya Group of companies it is only correct that the Chief Minister and his family should be utterly transparent and open about such matters and answer the questions that Sarawak Report and others have been raising. Otherwise onlookers will be entitled to come to their own conclusions and demand that the MACC makes a full investigation into the Taib family business activities in Hong Kong. 

Even if investigators are guaranteed a headache as they wade through the devious and complicated paths of company ownership.

    Come on Taib Mahmud..what say you?? Abuse of power???Please just look at Taib's body language. He lied.He is a liar.Can't you reporters see? Or all reporters are from TAIB's crony newspaper like KTS,RH group.Or the reporters are unqualified??

    HONGKONG authorities are checking now. Any more denial Taib??? Any more??? Never mind Taib,you may lie to the people of Sarawak

    but you cannot lied to GOD. God is watching you now as he hears the cries of the people of Sarawak being 'strangled" by you.

    Come on MoCS…come August 13th, MACC, LHDN, BNM…investigate him and his family ,cronies..

    We hate MONOPOLY by one man,one family, one crony and one race,MELANAU. Melanau has governs Sarawak for far too long.

    Who hates MONOPOLY???

    I like…5%.

    I hate…95%.

    • http://hotmail Anti-Taibetes

      ALSO BRING TO JUSTICE THE CRONIES AND TIMBER TYCOONS

      The only way Taib can avoid answer is to shut down the DUN sessions or shoot himself.

      However, the investigation must linked up all his accomplices so they may also be brought to justice?

      How about the cronies and minority timber tycoon clique.

      Should they not be brought to account for the billions they drained out of Sarawak?

      This is a job that the current KL regime will not be prepared to undertake.

      It needs a revolutionary government to tackle this big issue.

      It is likely these criminals will live to their old age and keep prospering.

      For them crime pays and pay bloody well!

  • AJ

    Taib should keep in mind this quote that i came across at a mosque.

    "Sembahyanglah sebelum anda disembahyangkan"

    Nuff said.

      AJ…He does NOT go to mosque.He practices SATANIC CULT. He believes in BOMOHISM,batu Delima Merah, Batu Rukan, Toyol, Djins and kris berdiri…that is why he has AHMAD SU'UT as his bomoh and gave him wealth(Bidayuh land at Kpg Mugu Kopi,Serian) as well as operating a SHELL Service station while we Sarawakians have NO chance at all.AHMAD SU'UT is an INDON(BRINDON).He cannot serve two masters.

      Yes I agree with you. "SEMBAHYANGLAH SEBELUM ANDA DI SEMBAHYANGKAN".

  • najibrazak

    Taib, of course, cannot provide any explanation for the damning facts brought out by Sarawak Report as MACC will have to discover.

    Once more BN are threatened with exposure of their own misdeeds because of their association with Taib. I must not linger over doing the deal with Taib that sees him depart for good with some of what he has stolen. The rest for us!

  • aborium

    This is money laundering on a massive scale involving individuals, share swaps, companies, and countries all linked to Taib and his family.

    The next thing to anticipate is for MACC and others to follow the paper trail of financial transactions through banks and their intermediaries.

    What ticks us off is the smug denials not only by Taib but also his cronies who have sworn blind allegiance and harping on their saving grace that he's 'innocent until proven guilty'. With the weight of information by SR, this adage should now be reversed – he's 'guilty until proven innocent'.

    No matter how complicated the tangled web of deceits and manoeuvres maybe, it is worth every dollar of public fund to investigate because the image and dignity of Sarawak and its People are at stake.

  • http://n/a Watch Dog

    UNIMAS Campus of Department of Marine Engineering and Oceanology Studies will be house at the former Residence of Chief minister of Sarawak as that was built with tax payers money.

    TM will run away soon.The world anti money laundering will go after him and freeze all his assets as well as that of his family and cronies.International Financial communities are watching now.So we hope that MACC is closing on him now and so too are LHDN and BNM. If this is done,Malaysia's rating on international corruption radar will improve.

      It's exactly what the Fallen Angel wants all of us to be – greedy. But we have a choice in life, and that personal choice will determine who we really are and what we will become of us at the end of the day, if not on earth, definitely the hereafter.

      So please make that choice wisely. God Bless you.

  • H C Chan

    UMNO led govt controls the POLICE AG JUDGES ELECTION COMMISSION, MACC etc

    UMNO uses Election Commission to win elections by unfair/unequal delineation, money politics, control major media etc. Putrajaya Parliament seat has 6608 voters & Kapar Parliament seat has 112,224 voters. Is the Chairman of EC so blind that he will not see OR he thinks the people are stupid.

    Even a child or moron will tell you it is UNFAIR.

    UMNO uses the POLICE to deal with its political opponents and critics like NGOs. Example is Operation Lallang when 106 opposition leaders & NGOs were put under ISA on 27/10/87

    Sivarasa said 278 people were shot & killed by Police including a 15 year old student Aminrulrasyid.

    81 shot dead were unidentifiable!!! What does this mean???

    Police assaulted people to death like Kugan.

    Anwar, former PM was also assaulted, obviously ordered by PM Mahathir. Where do ordinary citizens stand???

    Police Officer & Army Officers were involved in the killing of a Mongolian woman Altanuya.

    UMNO may use Police or UMNO mafia or hired agents to break into houses/ofices of opposition/critics at nite and steal computers, pen drives, files etc etc. Apparently Malaysiakini, DAP and Manjit Singh are victims of this sinister move!!! This is setting a bad precedent. It is immoral and un-islamic

    No wonder crime rates are HIGH in Malaysia.

    Many think Malaysia is a Police State.

    MACC is suspected of killing Teoh Beng Hock, a witness from opposition, for only about RM2400 alleged misappropriation.

    See how MACC deal with Khir Toyo so gentlely.

    Why MACC does not investigate people like TAIB and etc ???

    UMNO can use AG to charge opposition.

    BUT opposition cannot ask AG to charge UMNO leaders even though they made Police reports app with evidence.

    Judges like Augustine Paul and Arifin Jaka are despised by public.

    I remembered when the late Augustine Paul walked in a restaurant, some people shout at him!!!

    May God Bless Malaysia.

        Watch Dog,

        PM Najib compromises his ability to discharge his duties on the regional and international stage on behalf on the Malaysian people as long as he continues to turn a blind eye to the corruption issue which is now fast becoming global news. Can he effectively represent Malaysia at a govenment-to-government level in dealings with the US, EU or any other country ?Do we, as Malaysians, want to be represented by anyone who has a Minister whose character is under such international scrutiny ? Do you think other world leaders are comfortable sitting in the same table, or shake the hands of PM Najib if he refuses to put his house in order ?

        Pressure has to come from outsiders, such as the good works of Bruno Manser Fond, Sarawak Report and Free Radio Sarawak. It saddens me to think that Malaysia, with its enormous potential,is no different from a banana replubic in the 21st century.

  • James Masin

    MACC , if you are not able, incapable or do not have the resources to unwind Taib's web of corruption , you can outsource it to Sarawak Report Team. After all the BN Government is very keen in privatization and outsourcing project . Water supply , IPP, Navy Boat etc. Get it done faster so that TAIB can be relieved of all the accusation and enjoy his time with the very beautiful first Lady of Sarawak.

      the Chinese shopkeepers when asking why the cake

  • Blunt Speaker

    Raja Manggeng, the only logical thing to do is to boycott those shops you mentioned. Tell your folks to do likewise so that they lose business and close shops or become half dead shops to teach them a very good lesson. Spread the word around. There was once a restaurant serving me curry chicken rice without meat at all, only bones and curry gravy. I asked the towkay to come and give me some chicken meat and he retorted in a disgusting manner,' you think your money very big kah?' I was flabbergasted and before I could reply, my good friend shot back at him,' come on lah, give him some more meat lah, he can pay more if you demand.' The towkay just walked off and after that incident, we never patronize that shop any more and soon after that, it closed down. I told my friend that we are paying the same price like everybody else, how come we receive this type of poor quality and treatment. Being children of God, He is on our side and will not let us be bullied or oppressed. He will strike down our foes, oppressors and those who manipulated and were taking advantage of us. He will destroy this corrupt regime and a new dawn is coming soon. Thank you Father God, in Jesus most mightiest and victorious name, Amen!

  • Miri

    Can anybody find out if the Taib and families have been invited to Prince Albert of Monaco's wedding on Saturday, 2 July 2011 ?

    • http://n/a Watch Dog

      Miri..His fiancee ran away..chicken out but was caught at the

      airport by his body guard just like Hugh Hefner's also

      chicken out due to age. As for TM..the wife loves money

      as her Uncle who is also TM's brother in-law persuaded

      her.

      Any wedding for Prince Bald Albert?? He will go there with private jet at our expanse(tax Payers money).

    • Titan Sarawak

      The prince has said TM is the biggest investor in his country. No reason TM wasn't invited. Just need to see when TM is going!

      MACC need to prevent TM leaving the country!

      • Miri

        Titan Sarawak,

        Would you invite a thief whose character is under such international scrutiny to your wedding ? Or accept a wedding gift which is so tainted with corruption ? Well, saddly what does one expect from Monaco !

        • http://n/a Watch Dog

          MIRI..SIMILARITIES BETWEEN MONACO RULER AND SARAWAK RULER.

          1. MONACO—PRINCE ALBERT'S BODY GUARD IS GUARDING HIS FIANCEE

          AS SHE WANTS TO ABORT THE WEDDING.SHE WAS CAUGHT

          WITH A SINGLE TICKET AT NICE AIRPORT AS SHE WAS

          FRUSTRATED TO HEAR REPORTS OF PRINCE ALBERT.

          -BASTARD CHILD..WITH AN ESTATE AGENT FROM USA..19

          YEAR OLD GIRL.

          -BASTARD CHILD,9 YEAR OLD BOY WITH AIR FRANCE AIR

          HOSTESS FROM TOGO.(MULATI KID)

          2.SARAWAK….IRON FIST RULER..A LOVE CHILD WITH A BIDAYUH MAIDEN

          NOW 43 YEAR OLD SON.

          -A TEENAGE GIRL WITH RATU BIDAYUH NOW LIVING IN A

          SECLUDED CONDO IN BUKIT DAMANSARA, K.L.

          -SOMETIMES CLAIMED TO GO OVERSEAS BUT WENT FOR

          REST THERE.

          SO THERE ARE TWO BIDAYUH MILLIONAIRES ALREADY UNLESS THEY ARE BEING MARGINALISED BY DADDY LAH.

          IF DIDN'T GET ANYTHING,YB KARPAL SINGH OR HIS SONS CAN FIGHT THE CASE AND GO FOR DNA TESTS..PRINCE ALBERT OWNED TO IT JUST BEFORE DNA TESTS.

          On other hand Taib might find very much at home amongst crooks and tax dodgers residing in the Principality.

  • I Hate Racist

    Watch Dog:

    We hate MONOPOLY by one man,one family, one crony and one race,MELANAU. Melanau has governs Sarawak for far too long.

    Who hates MONOPOLY???

    I like…5%.

    I hate…95%.

    There are alot of us MELANAU who are in poverty. How can you generalise melanau and hate another race just because of a few F*&%^$G Taib idiots and his crony? You sounds like you are racist. As much as you hate Taib and MELANAU IN GENERAL, there are a lot of us Melanaus who hate him too!!

    You are blaming the whole MELANAU community because of the f*&^%$G few, you are a very narrow minded person. Why hate another race just because of one person?
