    Looks like Mr. Cheung had some sketchy dealings in the past. In 2001 he was charged with money laundering. Those charges were later stayed because his role was rather minor, but the kingpin of the operation, George Lawrence Neill, spent four years in prison.

    And Neill has been in prison before. He was convicted two times for drug trafficing. During one of his trials, two of his accomplices were murdered.
