KUANTAN: Wanted businessman Nicky Liow Soon Hee's Datuk Seri title has been revoked by the Pahang palace.

State secretary Datuk Seri Dr Sallehuddin Ishak said that by decree of the Sultan of Pahang, Soon Hee's Sri Sultan Ahmad Shah Pahang award had been revoked and cancelled with immediate effect on April 21.

Also revoked was the Datuk title conferred on Soon Hee's brother Liow Wei Loon.

Wei Loon had a Darjah Indera Mahkota Pahang award.

Sallehuddin said both of them were not allowed to use the title any more and must return the awards to the Pahang state secretary's office.

Soon Hee is the alleged leader of the Nicky Gang, which made headlines after its large-scale money laundering operations and commercial crime cases were recently busted by the police.

He is currently at large and is believed to be hiding in the country.

Nevertheless, police had obtained an Interpol Red Notice to locate and arrest the alleged syndicate leader.

Meanwhile, Wei Loon was among those charged in court for involvement in organised crime.
