KLANG: The remand orders against JJ Poor To Rich (JJPTR) founder Johnson Lee (pic) and two of his aides have been extended for another day until Friday.

The three men were brought by police to the court complex in Klang here at 10am on Thursday.

Lee and his assistants were picked up by police in Petaling Jaya at about 4.30am on Tuesday before they were remanded for three days.

Previously, Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) director Comm Datuk Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani said JJPTR had collected investments of up to RM1.7bil.

He said in a statement last week that following investigations on JJPTR, Bukit Aman's Anti-Money Laundering squad, CCID, Bank Negara, the Companies Commission of Malaysia, Inland Revenue Department, National Revenue Recovery Enforcement Team and Cyber Security had raided eight different locations in Penang.

Comm Acryl Sani said that following the raid, 15 workers and four investors were held for documentation process and questioning.
