JOHOR BAHARU, May 23 – Investigation papers on a bank officer who allegedly sent nasty messages to a Johor royal family member, and another who reportedly used the name of the royal family to cheat a laundry operator will be submitted to the Deputy Public Prosecutor’s Office soon.
Johor police chief Datuk Wan Ahmad Najmuddin Mohd said the police were in the process of completing the investigation papers to charge the two suspects for the offences. He said the suspects were currently under remand. He was speaking to reporters after a monthly gathering of personnel of the Johor police contingent headquarters here Monday.
He was asked to comment on the detention of the bank officer, in his 30s, at his work place in Menara Maybank in Kuala Lumpur on May 19. The 51-year-old man was said to have duped the laundry operator into handing over RM37,000 to help reduce the victim’s credit card debts as he claimed to have “connections” at the royal palace where he said he was employed.
“In another development, the owner of a car accessory shop risked facing the death penalty if found guilty of having a pistol in a car belonging to Johor Darul Ta’zim football player Safee Sali, which he had driven recently. The case has got nothing to do with Safee because his car was used by the suspect without his approval. The suspect is under remand until May 28 to facilitate investigations,” Wan Ahmad Najmuddin said.
