The Monetary Authority of Singapore has issued yesterday Prohibition Orders against three individuals for their fraudulent and dishonest conduct while carrying out their duties. Two former bank employees and a former insurance agent are concerned and their cases are not related.
They are respectively prohibited:

Mr Lee Boon Ngiap, Assistant Managing Director (Capital Markets), MAS, said: “MAS imposed Prohibition Orders of considerable duration against these individuals as they had abused their position of trust by engaging in criminal conduct at the expense of their customers.”
Their Prohibition Orders are effective from April 5th 2019.
