French national who fled after facing casino cheating charges caught & extradited
A 63-year-old French national was extradited back to Singapore on Tuesday morning for allegedly cheating at the Resorts World Sentosa casino in 2010.
Police said Reynald Georges Victor Lasnel was caught in Germany, with assistance from German authorities and INTERPOL.
He's wanted by the Singapore Police in connection with cheating offences of past posting, which is the act of placing the bet after the result is known, at the roulette table.
He's suspected of having committed the offences with two other persons on 26 March 2010 and 3 April 2010 at the casino.
The three were initially arrested and charged in 2010, but fled Singapore while out on court bail despite having their passports impounded.
The suspect will appear in court on Tuesday to face the charges against him.
