Senior cop queried over links with RM6mil money-laundering syndicate
PETALING JAYA: A senior police officer has been called in by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in connection with a RM6mil money-laundering syndicate.
The police officer, who is a Datuk, went to MACC headquarters in Putrajaya on Monday afternoon.
MACC Investigations director Datuk Mustafar Ali said the police officer has been called in to have his statement recorded to facilitate investigations into the syndicate.
“He is merely having his statement recorded. He is not detained.
“The Datuk gave his full cooperation on the matter,” he said when contacted Thursday.
It is learnt that the MACC would be calling in more police personnel to assist investigations.
The Datuk is the latest to be hauled in connection with the case after three policemen were detained on Nov 25.
It was reported that three police personnel were detained in connection with laundering more than RM6mil worth of “dirty money” last month.
The policemen – a Deputy Supt (DSP), an Asst Supt (ASP) and a sergeant – were detained separately between 6pm and 11pm on Nov 25.
