KUALA LUMPUR: Fugitive businessman, Nicky Liow Soon Hee, who is suspected of masterminding an organised crime group known as the ‘Nicky Gang’, has finally surrendered to the police after being on the run for more than a year.
Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Datuk Razarudin Husain, who confirmed the matter, said Liow, 34, was arrested after surrendering voluntarily at the Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Investigation Department office here, at about 11 am.
“He will be brought to Shah Alam Court tomorrow to face 26 charges.
“On March 23, the Shah Alam Court issued a warrant of arrest against Liow, to face charges under Section 4 (1) (a) of the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001,” he said when contacted here today.
On April 9 last year, Liow and his brother were charged in the Petaling Jaya Sessions Court, Selangor, for allegedly being members of an organised crime group.
However, Liow was charged in absentia, as he was on the run. Liow, who is the founder of Winner Dynasty Group, has been tracked down by the police over the Macau Scam syndicate after 68 of its members were arrested in ‘Ops Pelican 3.0’ in March last year.
On April 26 last year, Pahang Palace revoked and stripped Liow of the Darjah Kebesaran Darjah Sri Sultan Ahmad Shah Pahang (SSAP) which carries the title of Datuk Seri, with immediate effect.
