GEORGE TOWN: Ten JJPTR staff were taken to a police station here as part of investigations into the company.

A police officer said the staff were not arrested but were taken to the station for documentation purposes.

Earlier, police seized bags of documents, a mock cheque and other items from the JJPTR's main office at Perak Road.

Asked if the office would be sealed, the policeman said it would not but the office would be closed for today.

"You can come back again on Saturday to see if they are still operating," he said before leaving the premises after a four-hour raid at the office by officers from Bukit Aman's Anti Money-Laundering Squad, Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID),  Bank Negara and Companies Commission of Malaysia (SSM).
