The police are on the lookout for 32-year-old Goh Leong Yong who jumped the fence of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) building recently.
Sources have also revealed that the “Macau Scam” mastermind spent up to RM4 million monthly on bribing authorities.
According to Utusan Malaysia, Goh (who used a fake “Datuk Seri” title) allocated around RM2 million to RM4 million of his money per month to bribe authorities to stay silent about his illegal acts. It was reported that up to 100 individuals had received money from Goh including police officers, influential figures, and even government officials.
Those involved were allegedly paid off to protect both his “Macau Scam” and online gambling site activities. He also paid these irresponsible people in exchange for vital information on matters such as raids that were pre-planned by the authorities.
The individuals involved are currently being detained and investigated by the MACC, who are attempting to fully crack down the entire “Macau Scam” operation. Recently, it was revealed that Goh earns RM1.08 billion a year from the syndicate’s illegal activities, which has been running for the past five to six years, as per Utusan Malaysia.
The Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) is currently on the man-hunt for Goh and have released an official “wanted” poster. Bukit Aman CID director Comm Datuk Huzir Mohamed stated that the suspect’s last known location was at a condominium in Jalan Cheras.
Huzir requested anyone with information on the suspect’s whereabouts to contact any police station and noted that “the cooperation of the public is much appreciated.”
