MELAKA: Melaka police chief promises to provide investigators details of any of his men found to have links to fugitive businessman Nicky Liow Soon Hee.
Deputy Comm Datuk Abdul Majid Mohd Ali said top officials from the police contingent here would give their full cooperation if there were more arrests made in relation to money-laundering activities and involvement in organised crime syndicates.
"I will not compromise on such things and will work closely with my Johor counterpart to channel information on any officer from the Melaka contingent suspected of being involved in the ‘Nicky Gang’ or other crime activities, ” he said Wednesday (April 28).
On Tuesday (April 27), a 43-year-old police officer with the rank of Deputy Supt from the Melaka Tengah CID was arrested in a massive operation, led by the Johor police contingent under the second phase of Ops Pelican 3.0.
The arrests of 12 enforcement officers were also made in Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and Negri Sembilan between April 21 and 27.
Johor police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay said the arrest of the 12 suspects was the first involving law enforcement officers suspected of being involved in the activities of the "Nicky Gang".
He said the arrests followed a recent media conference by Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador where it was revealed that a total of 34 officers and enforcement personnel are believed to be involved with the gang.
