PUTRAJAYA (Bernama): The National Film Development Corporation Malaysia (Finas) seriously views allegations of money laundering, online gambling and prostitution syndicates linked to several players within the creative industry.

Its chairman Zakaria Abdul Hamid said Finas would leave it to the authorities to conduct investigations into the matter and take appropriate action in accordance with the law.
