In breaking news, apparently Dato Sri Nicky Liow Soon Hee is still on the loose. Although it was reported last time that he had been arrested, the police have explicitly stated he has yet to be apprehended.
In light of that, a video of him meeting triad leader Wan Kuok Koi (尹國駒) otherwise known as Yin Guoju (Broken Tooth/崩牙駒) has recently surfaced on the internet. As the saying goes, birds of a feather flock together.
Wan Kuok Koi is the leader of the 14k Triad, the largest organised crime syndicate in Macau, Hong Kong. He was born in the Macau slums in the 1950s and earned his nickname “Broken Tooth” after he lost nine teeth in a fight. Previously, he was arrested for criminal association, loan sharking, and illegal gambling. He was sentenced to 14 years of prison and was released in 2012.
On 6th October 2019, Wan and his wife visited Liow’s headquarters in Puchong, Selangor. From the video (below), it can be seen that Liow respected Wan a lot as he treated him with honour and dignity. Liow arranged for dozens of men and women to line up and welcome the triad leader with warm applause. He also brought out a basket of durian and wine to entertain Wan and the other ‘brothers’.
According to China Press, the video also showed Shi Weidang, captain of the Chinese Snow Leopard Commando introducing Wan. The triad leader and Liow seemed to enjoy themselves greatly. They made speeches, toasted and drank, and took a lot of photos together. Wan even performed the song “男儿当自强 (A Man Should Strengthen Himself)” with Liow.
Wan entered the country in 2019 for business reasons, but the police later received a report claiming he was suspected of a RM6 million fraud. He was then registered as a wanted suspect.
Yesterday (25th March) Johor police announced they are also searching for a former deputy public prosecutor (DPP). Md Azar Izwan Mohd Arifin @ Datuk A. Janus (42) is suspected to have been involved with Liow. It is believed that he is on the run from authorities now.
92 others have been arrested in relation to the fraud syndicate but 52 have since been released as they were not directly involved in the cases.
