Darren Chan, the founder of the controversial dating site Sugarbook, came up with another shocking statement to the public this week.
Darren, or Chan Eu Boon, claimed that there were “extremely influential people in power” and local celebrities who have also registered on the app. Though, he refused to reveal their names to the authorities.
“I can see why people might want me to release names and expose the sugar daddies on our site, but we take our data and privacy very seriously and will never compromise anyone’s personal identity. The authorities have requested for the names and addresses of our premium members, but I repeatedly refused to disclose any information,” Darren told VICE (as per The Star).
During the interview, the 34-year-old also denied the allegations that the app promoted prostitution but was instead a “niche online dating website”. Darren further revealed that he was currently focused on expanding his business overseas and considered entering Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Tokyo markets.
For the uninitiated, Darren was previously charged in court on 25th February after he published a post titled “Top 10 Sugar Baby Universities In Malaysia”. He pleaded not guilty to publishing it with the intention of raising the public’s concern.
The Malaysian entrepreneur could be facing a maximum prison sentence of two years, a fine, or both if convicted.
