Pi Jiapeng (‘Pi’) and Pansuk Siriwipa (‘Pansuk’), aged 26 and 27 respectively, who are suspects in a series of alleged cheating cases involving luxury products in 2022, have been arrested and successfully returned to Singapore. They returned to Singapore on 11 August 2022 to face charges of criminal conspiracy to commit cheating and illegal departure from Singapore.
The Singapore Police Force (SPF) has been working closely with various foreign law enforcement agencies to secure the couple’s return to Singapore. A Warrant of Arrest was issued against the couple on 16 July 2022. On 10 August 2022, the SPF received information from the Royal Thai Police that the couple may be putting up at a hotel in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. The SPF immediately sought the assistance of the Royal Malaysia Police to locate the couple. The Warrant of Arrest was executed by the Royal Malaysia Police in Johor Bahru on 11 August 2022.
Pi and Pansuk were handed over to the SPF on 11 August 2022. They will be charged in court on 12 August 2022. Investigations into the matter are ongoing.
The Singapore authorities will do whatever is necessary and permissible under Singapore law to pursue and bring to justice those who commit crimes in Singapore, regardless of where they might have fled to. We will also not hesitate to take firm action against fraudsters.
