Nigerian Man jailed for money laundering, dupes fellow inmate of $37.8k in prison

A Nigerian jailed in Singapore for money laundering, has been charged to court for another fraud.
Paul Gabriel Amos, 48, allegedly defrauded one Milled El Khouri of S$37,800 to make bail. Court documents showed this incident happened between January and May 2018.
Amos was in remand at the time, with his original case pending conclusion. While behind bars, he allegedly tricked Milled into delivering the cash to someone named Chung Ting Fai.
In May 2019, Amos was sentenced to three years in jail for helping to launder US$1.84 million that his friend had stolen from the Ethiopian government.
In 2009, he was prosecuted in a New York district court for committing bank and wire fraud. If convicted of fraud now in Singapore, he could face up to 10 years. He is set to return to court on Aug. 28, 2019.
