Malaysian-born actress Jacquelin Ch'ng is helping Hong Kong authorities in their ongoing probe into a suspected fraud case involving a cryptocurrency trading platform.

According to reports, Ch'ng – who was recently in Malaysia – arrived at the police headquarters in Wan Chai, Hong Kong on Thursday (Sept 21) to assist with the investigation.

The Hong Kong-based actress left the police station at around 3.40am on Friday after staying for five hours.

When asked by reporters what she had told officers, Ch'ng, 43, said that it was "inconvenient" to disclose further information at the moment and that she has passed the case on to her lawyers to handle.

As for whether or not she had additional comments about her previous statement, in which she said that she would not involve herself in any illegal activities, the TVB star said that "nothing has changed".

Hong Kong authorities are looking into the allegations of fraud against cryptocurrency trading platform JPEX after investors complained of HK$1.3bil (RM779.4mil) in losses.

According to Britain's BBC, 11 people – including social media influencers – have been arrested to date after complaints filed by 2,000 people.

When asked by Hong Kong media if she was familiar with any of the suspects, Ch'ng responded: "No, I don't know them."

The actress also said that there was no need for her to return to the police station or submit any travel documents for now.

Ch'ng found herself implicated in the alleged fraud case after she apparently took down an old video in which she talked about using JPEX to invest in cryptocurrency.

However, she claimed in a recent interview that she was innocent and that she herself was a "victim" as she suffered a six-figure loss in the JPEX incident.

Ch'ng also shut down speculations that she was trying to evade investigations after jetting off to Malaysia amid the ongoing probe, adding that she only returned to her hometown for her mother's birthday.
