Chinatown defendant says FBI agent forced money on him
23 December 2015, Nirapad News: A key defendant in an organized crime probe in San Francisco’s Chinatown led by an undercover FBI agent said the agent tried to drag him into conversations and force money on him.
Prosecutors began their cross-examination of Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow Tuesday, a day after he took the stand for the first time in the racketeering and murder case against him.
The undercover agent said Chow repeatedly accepted money after introducing the agent to money launderers.
Prosecutors say Chow had Allen Leung, the leader of a Chinese fraternal group with criminal ties killed, and then took over the group and ran an enterprise that engaged in drug trafficking, money laundering and the sale of stolen cigarettes and alcohol.
The probe led to the conviction of a state senator.
