A man was fined a total of $72,000 on Monday on nine charges of conspiring with others to forge documents in China.
Student agent Wang Hongtian, 28, a Singapore permanent resident, admitted to abetment by conspiracy to forge documents in China with co-accused Xu Changqing, 29, Xu Rui, 26, and others unknown in China.
Eighteen other charges were considered during his sentencing.
