The Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) launched a coffee table book yesterday to mark its 60th anniversary, and among the 18 high-profile cases featured in the book is that of Ah Long San, Singapore's notorious loan shark of the 1990s.

This feared criminal was not caught for a long time partly because he had moles within the police force who tipped him off about raids.

Whose law studies in Britain did he sponsor?

How did investigators eventually get his chauffeur to help them track him down?
