IPOH: A man is living in fear with loan sharks breathing down his neck over his brother’s debt of more than RM2mil.

Tan Ee Keng, 52, said Ah Long have been harassing his family since October last year.

“When they first met me, I told them that I had nothing to do with my brother and his business but they refused to believe me.

“My brother borrowed the money from them to set up his business. His business failed and he has gone missing.

“The loan sharks are chasing after me instead,” he told a press conference called by Gopeng MP Dr Lee Boon Chye at the latter’s service centre in Taman Botani here yesterday.

Tan said the loan sharks threatened to put up posters of his brother in the city.

“I have tried to contact my brother but he has not responded. I hope the loan sharks will stop harassing my family and go find my brother instead,” he said.
