SC seeks assistance to locate Asia Media's former MD


KUALA LUMPUR: The Securities Commission is seeking information and assistance from the public to locate the whereabouts of Ricky Wong Shee Kai, the former managing director and CEO of Asia Media Group Bhd.

A warrant of arrest was issued for Wong by the Kuala Lumpur Magistrate’s Court on Sept 29, 2021, for offences under the Capital Markets and Services Act 2007 (CMSA).

In a statement, the regulator said Wong had furnished a false statement relating to AMGB’s revenue of RM11.13mil to Bursa Malaysia.

He has been at large since December 2019.

Wong is facing charges under section 369(b)B of the CMSA and if convicted, would be liable to a fine not exceeding RM3mil and imprisonment not exceeding 10 years.

On Sept 30, 2021, the SC had charged the former group accountant of Asia Media, Ong Kar Kian, at the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court for the same offence.

Previously, on Dec 27, 2019, a warrant of arrest was issued against Wong by the Kuala Lumpur Magistrate’s Court after he repeatedly failed to appear before the SC’s investigating officer, pursuant to a notice issued under section 32(3)(a) of the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001.

Members of the public who has any information on the whereabouts of Wong may notify the SC at 017-3608328 / 012-9170738 /012-6108275 or email the SC at aduan@seccom.com.my.
