FOUR moneychangers of Singapore have been fined by a Singaporean court for failing to record transactions of nearly $720,000.

Singapore news agency Straitstimes.com reported Amit Hamja Shaik Dawood, Sheik Allavudeen S S Omar and Nizamudeen D M Syed Ahmad were fined $15,000 each while the fourth, Abdul Jaleel NK Mohamed Ali, was fined $24,000 for committing two offences.

Singaporean Money-Changing and Remittance Business Act requires licensees to keep a complete record of transactions of above $5000. The men pleaded guilty last week.

The court heard three port workers broke into a container on a ship docked at Jurong Port on August 19, 2010, and stole $F1million.

The money, all in $20 notes, was part of a shipment of newly-printed currency worth $F202 million en route from London to Fiji.
