NZ Govt demands almost $40 million from 'controversial citizen'

ONE of New Zealand's most controversial citizens will forfeit nearly $40 million to the police after a money-laundering inquiry.

William Yan (pictured) - also known as Bill Liu, Yang Liu and Yong Ming Yan - struck a deal as the final settlement in a civil case two years after the police raided his Auckland penthouse.

Most of the settlement is secret. Court documents show Mr Yan is alleged to have stolen about $125 million in his homeland China and concealed the fortune in New Zealand with complex money- laundering transactions. - APNZ
