WATCH: Senate hearing on $81-M Bangladesh bank heist, Day 4
MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine Senate held its 4th hearing on the Bangladesh Bank fund heist Tuesday, April 5, at 10:30 am.
During the 3rd Senate hearing last March 29, Chinese casino junket agent Kim Wong denied any links to the money laundering scandal.
Hackers stole $81 million from the Bangladesk Bank’s Federal Reserve account in New York, and about $63 million went to Solaire and Midas casinos in the Philippines.
Wong said operators Ding Zhize and Gao Shuhua brought the laundered money into Philippine casinos. He admitted that his company, Eastern Hawaii Leisure, received P1 billion but that he didn’t know it was part of the cyber theft.
