Taipei, June 8 (CNA) A Taiwanese woman who married a wealthy, critically ill Singaporean businessman allegedly with the sole purpose of inheriting his fortune has been arrested on suspicion of fraud, police said Wednesday.
Huang Kuan-chen (黃冠臻), 55, was arrested Tuesday and has been referred to prosecutors for further investigation, police said.
According to the Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB), Huang first became acquainted with Pua Ching Kiong (潘振強), the owner of the Singapore-based pharmaceutical company Pua Loong Trading & Co., at a religious event 30 years ago and encountered him again in 2014.
When Huang learned that Pua was single and was worth over NT$100 million, she and a 64-year-old friend Liu Wen-pin (劉文斌), tried to persuade Pua to move to Taiwan, the CIB said. [FULL STORY]
