130 arrested for money laundering
(08-03 16:12)

Police say 130 people have been arrested in a major operation against money laundering, involving some HK$300 million. Officers raided 21 locations and seized HK$3.4 million in cash, two cars worth a total of HK$8 million and 11 watches.
Superintendent Lau Shu-sing of the Organised Crime and Triad Bureau said those arrested were involved in running illegal businesses, such as unlawful gambling and selling illicit fuel.
However, he refused to confirm reports that an alleged gangster, who joined a controversial dinner gathering with Leung Chun-ying's campaign team earlier this year, was among those detained. Lau would only say the operation had dealt a serious blow to two active gangs, and had nothing to do with any election, RTHK reports.
