1. (SBU) Per reftel, post conducted a site visit to
establish the bona fides of Mega Indah Cargo Pte Ltd.

2. (SBU) Mega Indah Cargo is a limited exempt private
company that has been operating in Singapore since 1978.
(Note: The company was established under a different name,
Soon Hong Hang Pte Ltd. End note.) Singapore's online
business directory, Biznet, lists the company's principal
officers as:

Name: Chandra Budhi
Nationality: Indonesian
ID: D169693
Address: 13 Jalan Kusuma Negara, Jogjakarta, Indonesia

Name: Wong Kiah Peng
Nationality: Singaporean
ID: S0091677C
Address: 205 Balestier Road, #09-02, Ruby Plaza, Singapore

Name: Megawaty
Nationality: Singapore Permanent Resident
ID: S2579456G
Address: 22 Newton Road, #30-11, Amaryllis Ville, Singapore

3. (SBU) DHS/ICE databases revealed no negative information
about Mega Indah Cargo.

4. (SBU) We visited Mega Indah's warehouse on October 24.
However, no one on the premises could answer our questions
regarding reftel transaction, and we were asked to contact
manager Raymond Quek via telephone. Quek told us that Mega
Indah does not maintain detailed records in Singapore.
Bookkeeping is handled at the company's main office in
Jakarta. Mega Indah's Singapore operation does not interact
directly with customers outside of the country, he said.
Instead, all shipments for Indonesia, for example, are
forwarded to Mega Indah Jakarta for delivery. As a result,
Quek could not provide any information about Mega Indah's
relationship with the consignee, PT Sarigema Dinamika.
However, he did say that Mega Indah had a longstanding
relationship with the American seller, Sun Aviation.

5. (SBU) In our assessment, Mega Indah operations in
Singapore appear legitimate.
