An additional suspected core member of a large-scale and sophisticated syndicate suspected of operating “ramp-and-dump” market manipulation was charged today after six suspects had been charged earlier with various criminal offences (Note 1).

Mr Chow Chi Man appeared at the Eastern Magistracy today and he was charged with the offences of conspiracy to defraud and conspiracy to employ a scheme with intent to defraud or deceive in transactions involving securities under common law, section 300 of the Securities and Futures Ordinance and section 159A and 159C of the Crimes Ordinance.

No plea was taken and the case was adjourned to 4 October 2023. The Court granted bail to Chow on these conditions: (i) not to leave Hong Kong; (ii) surrender all travel documents; (iii) report to police station on regular basis; and (iv) cash bail of $500,000.  

The latest legal proceedings bring to 21 the total number of people charged following a series of extensive investigations by the SFC and the Police into suspected “ramp-and-dump” stock investment schemes and suspected money laundering activities.

No further comment will be made as legal proceedings have commenced.
