On Tuesday (3rd August) night, it was reported that a male celebrity was apprehended after police investigations had reason to believe on his involvement in human trafficking for sexual exploitation.
Kuala Pilah District Police chief Supt Amran Mohd Ghani stated that the public figure was arrested at a roadblock in Negeri Sembilan 2 days ago. At the time, his car, 4 mobile phones, some cash, and several packets of condoms were seized.
In addition, the police also rescued a Malaysian woman of Melanau descent from a hotel room located in Kuala Pilah around 10am. Since then, she has been placed under protection in a Johor shelter home.
The case is being investigated under Section 12 of the Anti-Trafficking in Persons and Anti-Smuggling of Migrants Act 2007. Authorities are also looking for the network of the human trafficking activity. Besides being remanded for 4 days under Section 117 of the Criminal Procedure Code, the male celeb was also compounded for breaking MCO SOPs with inter-state travel without a permit.
Although the identity of the celebrity wasn’t disclosed, some netizens assumed it was Tauke Jambu (real name Zamratul Amri Zakaria). The comedian and actor has denied being involved in the aforementioned crime. His Instagram account is also currently private.
When contacted, Tauke Jambu told Harian Metro, “That’s crazy to accuse me like that. I’ve been staying in my home at Bukit Jalil with my wife (Nadia Mohd Affandi). I can’t control what people say, but it’s hilarious how people would go ahead and spread rumours like that.”
Since it’s not Tauke Jambu, netizens are determined to find out who’s this celebrity.
