Police asked to investigate Nicky Liow for money laundering and fraud, and new revelations about his alleged chequered past.
- Big player in the money game scheme
- Probed for alleged criminal activities dating back to 2009
- Been investigated for alleged involvement in serious crimes, including causing injury and robbery
- Investigations completed but never prosecuted
Kampung Tunku assemblyman Lau Weng San claimed that the 29-year-old Datuk Seri already embroiled in several controversies – assault, bribery and drugs – was a big player in the money game scheme in Kuala Lumpur.
“The police should not just focus their investigations into the assault of the three (Rela) personnel. Check the source of his income. Investigations must be conducted into money laundering and fraud,” Lau said yesterday when speaking to reporters.
He said the police and the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) should also investigate allegations that Liow attempted to bribe the Rela trio to withdraw their police reports on assaulting them.
Meanwhile, former Selangor state executive councillor Ronnie Liu agreed with the stand of the Council of Federal Datuks, urging the ruler who awarded Liow the title to revoke it.
“Those undeserving of these titles should not have them,” Liu said.
Earlier, the Council of Federal Datuks president Tan Sri Danny Ooi expressed sadness over the incident where Liow was caught on video roughing up three Rela officers.
Ooi said any individual with good standing and holding a title should not resort to such actions.
“They must respect people in uniform. I hope if this news goes back to the Ruler who awarded the title, it should be taken away from the man,” he added.
Meanwhile, the New Straits Times reported today that Liow seems to have quite a chequered past.
Apparently, checks have revealed that he had been probed for alleged criminal activities dating back to 2009.
According to the daily’s sources, Liow had in the past been investigated for alleged involvement in serious crimes, including causing injury and robbery.
“Checks on the man’s background revealed that he had allegedly been the subject of investigations in at least 10 cases. The first was in 2009, allegedly for drug abuse. He was also arrested in 2013, under Section 324 of the Penal Code (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means), and at another time for alleged robbery,” a source was quoted as saying.
The report cited another of its source, who was also aware of the cases linked to Liow, saying that investigations against the suspect were completed but he was never prosecuted for the alleged offences.
