Yuexi Lei is in Vancouver Supreme court today applying for bail. He is the "Second man charged with murder in 2020 Richmond Japanese restaurant slaying of Jian Jun Zhu. Zhu was well-known to Richmond RCMP as the man behind the underground Richmond bank Silver International Ltd. that was accused of laundering $200 million annually. A criminal case against Zhu and director Caixuan Qin collapsed in November 2018 and the charges were stayed when federal prosecutors inadvertently exposed the name of an informant."
