So far among the cast of characters in the 1MDB trials that have begun in Singapore the names Yak Yew Chee, Yeo Jia Wei, Yvonne Seah, Eric Tan Kim Loong, JoLo and one Mat Salleh Jans Sturzenigger have been mentioned in Court.
This one name Eric Tan Kim Loong is a mystery. I am sure many of you have read the latest report from The Thingy. They suggest that the Eric Tan Kim Loong character and JoLo are both one and the same.
Today Godfather has sent in this comment (Thank you bro. Bila mau teh tarik?)
Is it really that difficult to trace the IP of the Eric Tan gmail account ? I suspect the Swiss and the Americans know. And what you delete from that account, you can recover those emails.
When you open an account, you must give the bank some identification documents like your IC or passport. You must appear in person. So Falcon must have Eric Tan’s details unless those details are forged and the person never appeared in the bank. That’s a whole lot of criminal offences.
The way the charges are framed by Singapore, I think Falcon accepted photocopies of identification documents without verification.

Godfather, this is just another case of theft. Simple thievery. Somewhere along the line, it will involve the nitty gritty of thievery. Fake Saudi Arabian prince, fake ID, fake rented yacht, fake rented offices in London, hiding behind doors, forged signatures, forged letters, forged letterheads and the whole schbang.
I am told that when the kampong boys first visited the crooky guys offices in London or somewhere, they even faked the office. They rented temporary offices, put up fake signboards, hired temporary and pretty Mat Salleh secretaries carrying files, typing letters etc like a genuine office. This really did impress the kampong boys.
I will not be surprised at all if Eric Tan Kim Loong is a fake name and id issued to JoLo just for this purpose.It cannot be a fake Singapore ID. They are very strict. I suspect it could be a Malaysian “genuine” fake ID. Meaning they were really able to generate a new IC and a new Malaysian passport for the name Eric Tan Kim Loong.
So there was no need to use photocopy documents (although that is a possibility).
With a genuine fake IC and passport, JoLo could just walk into Falcon Bank or BSI Bank (on a Monday and maybe wearing a disguise) and introduce himself as Eric Tan Kim Loong with a genuine Malaysian IC and Passport saying so and then proceed to open his accounts as Eric Tan Kim Loong. Plus he already had accomplices inside BSI Bank and Falcon Bank who have now been jailed in Singapore. This would have been done years ago, and before the funds were stolen.
If Sarawak Report has sussed this out it is maybe because someone has tipped off Claire Rewcastle Brown. Maybe from Singapore.
This is therefore explosive. Very explosive. If it is true that Eric Tan is JoLo with a genuine Malaysian IC and passport, then the next question will be ‘How did JoLo / Eric Tan get a genuine fake Malaysian IC and passport? It has to go back to Putrajata.
