KUALA LUMPUR: Bukit Aman investigators were in Bangkok recently to question “Malaysian Iceman”, the man said to be a key middleman for international drug syndicates.

Federal Narcotics Crime Investi­gation Department director Comm Datuk Seri Mohd Mokhtar Mohd Shariff said since the suspect’s arrest in Thailand in April, authorities there were cooperating with their Malaysian counterparts.

“We have the full cooperation of the Royal Thailand Police Narcotics Suppression Bureau.

“We have also been sharing information and intelligence with them,” he told reporters at Bukit Aman yesterday.

Asked if the interrogation would help police bust drug syndicates in Malaysia, Comm Mohd Mokhtar said he could not comment but added: “All I can say is that it was a fruitful visit.”

Comm Mohd Mokhtar also said the suspect would have to face the law in Thailand for his crimes.

Yesterday, Bernama reported that Thai authorities seized assets held by “Mr T”, the “Malaysian Iceman”.

According to a source, the authorities also confiscated assets in the suspect’s Thai wife and son’s names.

The combined value ran into millions of Thai baht, with most of the property and assets located in Haadyai and other southern Thailand provinces.
