Fugitive Alvin Goh who fled MACC HQ remanded three days


KUALA LUMPUR: Fugitive Goh Leong Yeong, also known as Alvin Goh, has been remanded for three days.

The 32-year-old man, the main suspect in a money-laundering case, will be remanded until Oct 29.

The remand process was carried out at the Cheras police headquarters on Tuesday (Oct 27) for Goh, who was detained under Section 4(1)(c) of the Common Gaming House Act 1953.

Bukit Aman CID director Comm Datuk Huzir Mohamed said the remand order was to enable police to further investigate Goh for suspected illegal activities.

"At this moment, we are investigating his suspected involvement in money laundering, Macau scam that targeted people overseas and online gambling.

"We have started an investigation on him, and we will identify his actual activities during the course of the investigation," he added.

Earlier, Comm Huzir confirmed that Goh had been arrested at about 1.30am on Tuesday.

He was arrested along with a foreign woman, believed to be his girlfriend.

It had been reported earlier that a manhunt was launched for Goh after he fled the MACC headquarters on Oct 11.

Comm Huzir had said the 32-year-old suspect, whose last known address is at a condominium in Jalan Cheras, was wanted for three online gambling cases in Cheras.

"We believe he is behind the illegal online gambling racket in Kuala Lumpur and Cheras," he said.

He escaped shortly after he was released by the MACC on bail.
