Rewards for Justice is offering a reward of up to $5 million for information that leads to the disruption of financial mechanisms of persons engaged in certain activities that support North Korea (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, DPRK), including money laundering, exportation of luxury goods to North Korea, specified cyber-activity and actions that support weapons of mass destruction (WMD) proliferation.
Kwek Kee Seng is a Singaporean national and director and shareholder of Swanseas Port Services (S) Pte Ltd, a Singapore-based shipping agency and terminal operations company. He has conspired to do business with, and provide sanctioned services to, North Korea, enabling the DPRK’s nuclear proliferation programs.
Since early 2019, Kwek has assisted and directed numerous petroleum product shipments to North Korea and ship-to-ship transfers of oil to North Korean vessels, providing a critical resource for North Korea-based companies and for the North Korean government. He conspired to launder money through the U.S. financial system by funneling U.S. dollars through front companies to conceal payment origins, and structuring transactions to avoid scrutiny and evade sanctions.
On April 23, 2021, Kwek Kee Seng was charged by the U.S. authorities with conspiracy to violate the International Emergency Economic Powers Act and conspiracy to commit international money laundering.
