Crazy Rich Asians author Kevin Kwan wanted in Singapore for dodging military service

Crazy Rich Asians author Kevin Kwan wanted in Singapore for dodging military serviceThe author of the book "Crazy Rich Asians", which inspired the Hollywood hit film of the same title, is wanted in his home country of Singapore for defaulting on his military service, the defence ministry said on Wednesday. Kevin Kwan, author of the 2013 book and an executive producer of the film, was notably absent from the Singapore premier of the romantic comedy on Tuesday. The Ministry of Defence said Mr Kwan had failed to register for National Service (NS) in 1990, despite notices and letters sent to his overseas address, and he had also stayed overseas without a valid exit permit. "Mr Kwan is therefore wanted for defaulting on his NS obligations," the ministry said in a statement. He was liable to a fine of up to S$ 10,000 ($ 7,315) "and/or imprisonment of up to 3 years upon conviction", the ministry said.

Singapore has a strict law on national service for all male citizens and enforces it with few exceptions. It makes it illegal for men to give up citizenship without having completed their military service, of about two years. Mr Kwan left Singapore at age 11, first moving to Texas with his family, and has lived in the United States since then, Singapore media said. His 1994 application to renounce his Singapore citizenship and a subsequent appeal had been rejected, the ministry said. Mr Kwan's book and the film directed by Jon M Chu depict Singapore as a playground for the super-rich in a story about an Asian-American woman who goes to the city state to meet her boyfriend's wealthy family. Mr Kwan himself comes from a prominent Singapore family. His great grandfather was a founding director of the Overseas-Chinese Banking Corporation – Singapore's oldest bank.
