More reports against JJPTR

KUALA LUMPUR: Eight new police reports have been lodged against the JJ Poor to Rich (JJPTR) money game, with an additional investigation paper opened on the case, said Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) director Comm Datuk Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani yesterday.

He also said police will decide today if a remand extension is needed for the firm's founder Johnson Lee and two of his associates.

Acryl declined comment on whether more arrests would be made.

"It is still under investigation and we cannot reveal that information yet."

Two investigation papers have already been opened on the Penang-based money game scheme.

Lee's arrest came four days after a task force from Bukit Aman's Anti-Money Laundering squad, CCID, Bank Negara, the Companies Commission of Malaysia, Inland Revenue Department, National Revenue Recovery Enforcement Team and Cyber Security raided eight JJPTR premises in Penang on Friday.

Among the locations targeted by the task force were offices and residential units.

During raids, 15 JJPTR employees and four investors aged between 23 and 40 had their statements recorded by police.

Police also seized seven computers and laptops, cash counting machines, documents, televisions, CCTV cameras and RM3,300.
