Man accuses ex-beau of stealing diamond ring


KUALA LUMPUR: Things turned ugly for a 31-year-old beauty consultant after she broke up with her boyfriend, who has now accused her of stealing a diamond ring.

The woman, who wished to be known only as Haw, said her 45-year-old ex-boyfriend claimed she had stolen the ring from his sister.

“I met him in March 2017. He gave me the 0.86 carat diamond ring as a gift two months later,” she said at a press conference organised by MCA Public Services and Complaints Department head Datuk Seri Michael Chong yesterday.

Haw said she broke up with the man in December 2018 due to his bad habits, including always borrowing money from her.

“I went to a goldsmith to check the ring’s value on Aug 3 this year. Somehow, my ex-boyfriend got wind of this and filed a police report against me on Aug 12,” she said.

Haw said she was detained by the police on Aug 15.

Chong advised women to take photos during their relationship, including of gifts bestowed upon them.“It is scary how things can turn sour once a couple has broken up,” he said, adding that he had referred Haw to a lawyer who would help get more details from the police.
