The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has arrested 10 individuals including eight senior PDRM officers and confiscated RM100,000 in cash in connection with investigations into money laundering activities from online gambling activities and the Macau Scam.

Four of the senior officers involved held the positions of Assistant Commissioner (ACP), Superintendent, Deputy Superintendent and Assistant Superintendent while two others were Lance Corporals. They were detained yesterday afternoon (6 October) while four others were arrested on 7 October.

According to Berita Harian, all of the officers involved work at Bukit Aman and the Selangor Police Contingent Headquarters (IPK).

The ACP involved in this case was released after his testimony was recorded while the Superintendent involved was remanded to assist in investigations.

“During the arrest process, the MACC also confiscated RM100,000 in cash from the residence of one of the detained officers,” sources said.

“So far, further investigations are underway to find out if suspects received large ‘allocations’ from a Datuk, who was remanded last Saturday (3 October), to protect gambling activities via local networks and a Macau Scam that are targeting victims from China.”

As of now, the MACC is still tracking the remaining officers and policemen who are on duty at the Bukit Aman, Selangor and Kuala Lumpur Contingents as well as several District Police Headquarters (IPD) to assist in the investigation.

The MACC also arrested eight suspects including a Datuk who handles bribes for gambling activities, Macau scam activities and the ‘washing’ of dirty money by investing in celebrities and cosmetic entrepreneurs.

Previously, the MACC froze 750 accounts with savings of about RM75 million as a result of money laundering activities, including celebrities and cosmetics entrepreneurs.

The MACC also seized 24 luxury vehicles and high-powered motorcycles belonging to some of the individuals detained.
