5 Indians CONVICTED in Singapore

Singapore, April 24 (UITV/IANS) Five Indian nationals were jailed here on Monday for making fraudulent Goods and Services Tax (GST) refund claims amounting to 167,253 Singapore dollars (US $120,422) between January 2015 to May last year, a media report said.

Kothandaraman Gnanam (29), Karunanidhi Rajesh (32), Ramaiyan Karthikeyan (44) and Waithiyalingam Karunanidhi (61), were each jailed for three years and three months. 

Their accomplice, Karunanithi Saravanan (37) was jailed for three years and two months, the Strait Times reported.

The men were also fined between 14,000 Singapore dollars ($10,080) and 70,000 Singapore dollars ($50,400). Each man also had to fork out 51,952.71 Singapore dollars ($37,405) as a penalty.

The court heard that the men loitered in and around jewellery shops in Little India to obtain invoices and jewellery tags from customers such as Singapore permanent residents and work pass holders, who are not entitled to GST refunds.

Then they would buy the invoices from the customers but no mention was made on the amount they paid for each invoice.
