Ng Lap Seng, the Chinese billionaire "diplomat" (Dominica diplomatic passport purchaser) currently serving a four-year sentence for bribing United Nations diplomats to approve annual UN use of his conference center in Macao, continues to seek early release to home confinement (house arrest). His attorneys last week sent a letter to the sentencing judge, asserting that the Exhaustion of Remedies issue he faced is now moot. Obviously, Ng is desperate to leave prison.
The Warden where he is incarcerated failed to respond with the statutory 30 day period, and Ng's counsel is arguing that his client should now receive proper consideration for his motion. he has only served less than a year of his sentence. See our prior articles on this defendant for more details.
