Belfast solicitor 'linked to Triads'
A Belfast solicitor accused of involvement in a multi-million pound money laundering and legal aid fraud allegedly became "ensnared" with Chinese Triads, the High Court has heard.
Ho Ling Mo, who faces separate charges connected to an alleged sham marriage racket, claims she acted under duress.
It was also disclosed that Legal Services Commission representatives have travelled to Scotland to investigate other suspected bogus immigration tribunal cases.
Mo (40), of Oakwood Park, Belfast, faces charges including acquiring and transferring criminal property, false accounting, fraud and aiding illegal immigration through sham marriages.
The solicitor, who ran her own legal practice, denies the offences.
A bail application was refused.
