Police are on the hunt for a businessman with the title of “Dato Sri” who is allegedly involved in a money laundering and commercial crime syndicate.
Johor police chief Datuk Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay said the 33-year-old Dato Sri Nicky Liow Soon Hee’s last known address was Unit 1009, Trigon Residence, Puchong, Selangor.
The founder of the Winner Dynasty Group is wanted to assist investigation under Section 130 V to 130 ZB of the Penal Code for offences related to organised crime.
“Yesterday, Johor police mounted an operation which included a raid in Puchong, Selangor and detained 12 individuals, including another person who is also a ‘Dato Sri’.
“This is a huge syndicate, and it involves a lot of cheating and scams. The suspect is an influential person and has many connections with public figures, including officers from enforcement agencies.
“Anyone found trying to protect the suspect will have stern action taken against them, regardless if they are civilians or from enforcement agencies including police,” he said.
Police believe Nicky Liow is still in Puchong, and they are actively looking for him.
Two investigation papers have been opened concerning Nicky Liow in Johor under the Anti-Money Laundering Act (AMLA) and the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012 (Sosma).
Previously, Nicky Liow was arrested for assaulting two Rela members who were on duty at the Kou Ong Yah temple in Kuala Lumpur four years ago. He was later acquitted and discharged. – NST
