Bank employee held over RM24mil case


PETALING JAYA: Over RM24mil in suspicious bank transactions from several savings accounts led to the arrest of a bank staffer in Sabah.

Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) director Comm Datuk Seri Ramli Mohamed Yoosuf said four police reports were lodged since early June, with losses estimated to be around RM24.2mil.

“Complainants included account holders and bank staff who noticed suspicious transactions in Kota Kinabalu. All denied involvement and said they had never been to Kota Kinabalu,” he said.

Following investigations, police arrested the 38-year-old in Kota Kinabalu on June 13.

“Crime syndicate members inside and outside the bank worked together to take the money out. Several other individuals are being tracked down,” he said.

Three mobile phones, eight ATM cards, a laptop and RM4,400 in cash were seized.
