MACC fugitive Alvin Goh rented two rooms in resort to avoid detection, say sources


KUALA LUMPUR: Fugitive Goh Leong Yeong, also known as Alvin Goh, rented two rooms at a resort in Pahang to avoid detection, say sources.

The main suspect in a money laundering case had initially rented a room on the 24th floor of the resort before taking up a second room on the 10th floor on Monday (Oct 26).

Sources said Goh had been hiding at the resort for about a week, accompanied by a female Chinese national, believed to be his girlfriend.

"He also recorded an eight-minute-39-second video regarding allegations he was involved in Macau scam and online gambling before sending the video to his friends and acquaintances," added sources.

The video is believed would be spread by his friends on social media if Goh was detained.

"When he was arrested early Tuesday (Oct 27) morning, the video has been detected on Facebook after it was shared by his friends," said sources. Goh, 32, has since been remanded until Oct 29.

Since Oct 2, the MACC has detained more than 20 people including eight police officers and personnel along with Goh and Addy Kanna.

They were detained for suspected money laundering as well as involvement in forex and Macau scams ran by a syndicate from China.

On Oct 11, all were released on MACC bail but Addy Kanna and two others were later detained by the police.

Goh, however, fled the MACC headquarters in Putrajaya.

MACC chief Datuk Seri Azam Baki revealed that about RM101mil from 736 bank accounts have been frozen while cash amounting to RM5mil along with 23 luxury vehicles as well as high-powered motorcycles have been seized by graft busters.
