Another Datuk arrested. For impersonation and money laundering.

..

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 20 ― A man with a “Datuk” title was arrested in his house here yesterday for alleged money laundering and impersonating a bank officer.

Bukit Aman Anti-Money Laundering Act (AMLA) crime investigation team deputy head ACP Amran Yaacob said the suspect has been placed under remand until Saturday to facilitate investigations under Section 4(1) of the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001 (AMLATFPUAA).

He said the arrest was made following a police report lodged on January 9 in which the suspect was believed to have deceived an accountant attached to a corporation by introducing himself as a bank officer and offering him (accountant) a fixed deposit investment scheme.

“The suspect claimed that the scheme promised Shariah-based six per cent returns that also included zakat deduction, and free of tax and management fees as well,” Amran said when contacted.

He said between 2015 and 2018, the victim claimed to have received statements for his investments, but found much later that his money was actually invested in unit trust and the statements he received were fake.

Amran said the victim claimed he suffered about RM40 million in losses as a result of being cheated. ― Bernama

Datuk ditahan menyamar pegawai bank

BERNAMA

LELAKI bergelar Datuk ditahan di rumahnya di Kuala Lumpur, bagi membantu siasatan berhubung penggubahan wang haram, selain kes menyamar sebagai pegawai bank.

Timbalan Ketua Pasukan Siasatan Jenayah Penggubahan Wang Haram (AMLA) Urusetia Ketua Polis Negara Bukit Aman, Asisten Komisioner Amran Yaacob berkata, suspek ditahan reman sehingga Sabtu bagi membantu siasatan mengikut Seksyen 4(1) Akta Pencegahan Penggubahan Wang Haram, Pembiayaan Keganasan Dan Hasil Daripada Aktiviti Haram 2001.

Beliau berkata, penahanan itu dibuat ekoran satu laporan pada 9 Januari lalu, yang mana suspek dipercayai memperdaya seorang akauntan sebuah perbadanan, dengan memperkenalkan diri sebagai pegawai bank serta menawarkan pelaburan dalam Skim Simpanan Tetap.

“Suspek mendakwa skim berkenaan memberikan kadar faedah yang efektif sebanyak enam peratus berkonsepkan syariah tanpa riba, ditolak zakat serta tiada fi pengurusan serta tidak dikenakan cukai,” katanya ketika dihubungi.

Beliau berkata, sepanjang tempoh 2015 hingga 2018, mangsa mendakwa menerima penyata akaun untuk pelaburan itu dan selepas diperiksa, didapati ia sebenarnya adalah pelaburan di Unit Amanah dan suspek memberikan penyata akaun yang palsu.

Amran berkata, ekoran penipuan dilakukan suspek, mangsa mendakwa mengalami kerugian sebanyak RM40 juta.Artikel ini disiarkan pada : Khamis, 20 Februari 2020 @ 10:38 PM
