SINGAPOREAN R Shanmugaratnam has been charged two more times for falsifying letters that misrepresented balances held by his company's escrow accounts as at March 31, 2016.

The fifth charge pertains to a falsified letter to Wirecard UK & Ireland, representing that there was a balance of 41.5 million euros held by Citadelle in an escrow account, when the account did not hold such a balance.
