US prosecutors targeting Macau billionaire Ng Lap Seng reveal new charges – and his nickname


US prosecutors on Tuesday brought new charges against a billionaire from Macau accused of engaging in a scheme to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes to a former United Nations General Assembly president.

A revised indictment filed in Manhattan federal court against Ng Lap Seng, a real estate developer from the Chinese territory, and his assistant, Jeff Yin, included new charges that both men violated the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

Prosecutors also added tax-related charges against Yin. The indictment said he took steps to evade paying income taxes and helped a diplomat from the Dominican Republic involved in the scheme conceal portions of his income from U.S. tax authorities.
