In 2014, Phua’s associates planned a secret meeting between then-Montenegro Prime Minister (now President Milo Đukanović) and Phua himself in Venice, an FBI transcript reveals. The Montenegrin Government refuses to issue complete information of the PM's whereabouts during the proposed time of the meeting.

Phua has been the owner of one of the largest online betting companies in the world, IBC Bet, according to a confession by a member of his family. IBC Bet, now called Maxbet, has been called illegal as its operations are accessible to consumers in countries where it does not hold a betting license. Over six million euros from a named company that owns IBC Bet was deposited in an account of a Montenegrin bank, owned by one of Phua's partners.
