PETALING JAYA: The Securities Commission Malaysia (SC) is seeking information or assistance from the public to establish the whereabouts of Datuk Wong Shee Kai (Ricky Wong), who is a wanted person and currently at-large, in connection with offences under the AntiMoney Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001 (AMLATFPUAA).

Wong is the founder of Asia Media Group Bhd, and a major shareholder in Bright Packaging Industry Bhd.

In a statement, the SC said it has also sought assistance from Interpol on April 3 to find Wong.

“The search follows on from the issuance of a warrant of arrest against Wong by the Kuala Lumpur Magistrate’s Court on 27 December 2019 for failing to appear before the SC’s investigating officer as required under section 32(3)(a) of AMLATFPUAA,” it said.

If found to be in breach of section 32(3)(a) of AMLATFPUAA, Wong will, upon conviction, be liable to a fine not exceeding RM3 million or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding five years, or both, under section 32(8) of the same Act.

The SC urged members of the public with any information on Wong are encouraged to notify the SC of his whereabouts by calling 012-3812497 / 012-9105362 or emailing the SC at aduan@seccom.com.my.

Wong’s last known business/employment address is: Asia Media Group Berhad, No. 35, First Floor, Jalan Bandar 16, Pusat Bandar Puchong, 47100 Puchong, Selangor.
