Bank officer under probe over purchase of gold bars using his customers' FD deposits

KUALA LUMPUR: Bukit Aman is investigating seven police reports of criminal breach of trust (CBT) amounting to about RM4mil involving a bank's customer relations officer.

Bukit Aman Commercial Crimes Investigation Department director Comm Datuk Kamarudin Md Din said the suspect was arrested on Sept 21 based on one of the police reports where he was said to have bought seven gold bars using a customer's fixed deposit savings.

"He was charged under Section 408 of the Penal Code on Sept 27 but pleaded not guilty and granted bail at RM30,000.

"We are still investigating six other reports involving the suspect," he said in a statement on Monday (Oct 25).

Comm Kamarudin said investigations showed that there could be more victims but they have yet to lodge a police report.

"We urge these victims to come forward and file a report at the nearest police station," he said.
