No Immigration links to Nicky Gang, says DG


KUALA LUMPUR: The Immigration Department has not received any information from the police force on the involvement of its personnel in the case of fugitive businessman Datuk Seri Nicky Liow Soon Hee.

Its director-general Datuk Khairul Dzaimee Daud said the department was ready to cooperate with the police if its personnel were found to be involved in the country’s biggest money-laundering syndicate carried out by “Nicky Gang”.

“If indeed there are staff members involved, we will not compromise, ” he said after an integrated operation in Bukit Puchong here yesterday.

Last Tuesday, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador revealed that 34 enforcement personnel were suspected of having links with the organised crime syndicate, led by Liow, 33, who is also the founder of Winner Dynasty Group which is headquartered in Setiawalk Puchong, Selangor.

On the operation, Khairul Dzaimee said 43 illegal immigrants comprising 33 Indonesians and 10 Bangladeshis were arrested in a raid that started at midnight at an illegal settlement in Bukit Puchong.

“We believe that the settlement was built about six or seven years. The illegal immigrants moved here because they could no longer afford to pay their house rentals after losing their jobs due to the Covid-19 pandemic, ” he said. — Bernama
