It seems like the story about the infamous “Macau Scam” is far from over with the recently arrested Datuk Seri reportedly escaping from MACC.
The number one suspect of the “Macau Scam”, who is also allegedly involved in money laundering is currently being sought by the police.
A local portal reported that the individual left the MACC building by climbing through a fence behind the building as soon as he was freed. When it happened, the police stationed in front of the building managed to only arrest one of the alleged syndicate’s puppeteers.
Following the event, the police are now currently looking for the escapee who is still needed by MACC to aid in the investigation. The individual is believed to be the mastermind behind the “Macau Scam”, and laundered dirty money through businesses run by local celebrities.
For context, the remand application for three individuals arrested in relation to the syndicate has been denied by the court. The reasoning behind this is they are required by the police to aid in the investigation.
