Man held over job scam


KUCHING: A man, arrested in connection with a cheating case invol­ving 47 Malaysians who were held in Cambodia, has been remanded for four days.

Kuching court registrar Dora Undau issued the order following an application by investigating officer Asst Supt Pricha Azin.

On Saturday, the 34-year-old suspect was arrested at his house here.

To date, 23 people, comprising 18 men and five women, lodged police reports on the case.

The 47 Malaysians were detained in Cambodia on Dec 11 last year over illegal online gambling activities.

All of them were released after the authorities there found that they had been duped by a job agency syndicate. — Bernama
