Police are looking for a businessman with the title 'Datuk Sri' for investigations allegedly involving him in commercial crimes and money laundering
Johor police chief Datuk Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay said Datuk Sri Nicky Liow Soon Hee, the founder of Winner Dynasty Group, is wanted to assist in investigations under Section 130V to 130ZB of the Penal Code for organised crimes.
According to Bernama, the 33-year-old's last known address is at Trigon Residence in Puchong, Selangor.
The police conducted a raid of the apartment in Puchong last night, 21 March, but were unable to locate the man
According to China Press, over 100 police officers were mobilised to sweep the apartment building and the Winner Dynasty Group office at the Setia Walk business district from midnight.
However, Liow was not found at any of the several apartment units registered under the group's name.
Ayob Khan said they believe he is still within Selangor and are actively looking for him.
The police detained 12 other individuals believed to be related to the crime syndicate led by the suspect, including another person with the honorific 'Datuk Sri'.
The case is being investigated by the Johor police under the Anti-Money Laundering Act 2001 (AMLA) and the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012 (SOSMA)
"This is a huge syndicate and it involves a lot of cheating and scams. The suspect is an influential person and has many connections with public figures including officers from enforcement agencies," said the police chief, as quoted by New Straits Times.
"Anyone found trying to protect the suspect will have stern action taken against them, regardless if they are civilians or from enforcement agencies such as the police."
In 2017, Liow was arrested for assaulting three RELA personnel who reprimanded him for obstructing traffic:
