‘Datuk’ and wife to be charged

PETALING JAYA: A Datuk who allegedly amassed a fortune through various illegal syndicates will be charged today.

Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal said the Datuk, 40, and his wife, 41, would be brought to the Selayang Court today to face charges under Section 4(1)(a) of the Common Gaming Houses Act.

“The main suspect is expected to be charged with three counts of keeping or using a place as a common gaming house while his wife is expected to face one count of the same charge,” he said yesterday.

It was reported on Aug 16 that a police raid on an illegal online gambling syndicate last month eventually led to police uncovering a larger network run by a “Datuk”.

The Datuk, who was arrested last week, was linked to illegal money lending activities and electricity theft for a bitcoin mining operation.
