Clad in an orange polo t-shirt, Ong appeared for the court hearing today via video link while still remanded at central police station.

He will be remanded for another week as the Commercial Affairs Department requests for more time to conduct fund tracing and verifying unauthorised transactions at JLC Advisors.

It was revealed that a further three clients had come forward to the CAD about unauthorised transactions with their accounts at JLC Advisors. The sum involved with these three clients total $16 million.

Ong is also linked to the $33 million belonging to Allied Technologies that went missing in an escrow account in JLC.

The prosecution has yet to charge Ong with offences related to Allied Tech.
