'Cheating service' settles - Police Commissioner

From Morning Report, 7:37 am on 28 June 2018

A couple at the centre of a website accused of selling completed assignments to students have settled with the Police Commissioner outside of court. The Police Commissioner asked the High Court in Auckland to order Assignments4U website bosses Steven Quan Li and his wife Fan Yang to forfeit more than $4.6 million it said were proceeds of crime. The investigation also uncovered alleged mortgage fraud by the couple and family members. The allegations were denied. The parties have now settled outside of court for less than half the original sum sought by the Commissioner. RNZ court reporter Edward Gay has been following the case and talks through the details with Susie Ferguson.
