KUALA LUMPUR: Police have detained the owner of a film production company with the honorific title of ‘Datuk’ in connection with 23 reports lodged over foreign exchange and cryptocurrency investment scam with losses amounting to RM13.9 million.
According to a police source, the 35-year-old suspect was picked up by a team from the Inspector-General of Police Anti-Money Laundering Crime Investigation Unit at Menara 238 in Jalan Tun Razak about 5.30pm yesterday.
It is learnt that the remand application for suspect will be made at 10am tomorrow.
Bernama also learnt that the arrest came following the latest police report lodged by a 47-year-old woman.
Based on the report, the victim claimed that she was offered to join an investment scheme which could give multiple profits to the investors.
The woman lodged the report at the Kajang police station on Nov 2 last year after she did not receive any profit as promised. — Bernama
