KUALA LUMPUR: Police have been urged to investigate the source of wealth of the “Datuk Seri” caught for assaulting three Rela personnel.
Kampung Tunku assemblyman Lau Weng San alleged that the 29-year-old suspect was a big player in the money game scheme here.
“The police should not just focus their investigations into the assault of the three personnel. Check the source of his income. Investigations must be conducted into money laundering and fraud,” he said.
Lau said this when speaking to reporters after attending a meeting with police from the Federal Commercial Crime Investigation Department on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, former Selangor state executive councillor Ronnie Liu agreed with the stand of the Council of Federal Datuks urging the ruler who awarded the suspect with the title to revoke it.
“Those undeserving of these titles should not have them,” he said.
It was reported that the Council of Federal Datuks president Tan Sri Danny Ooi expressed sadness over the incident where the suspect was seen on video assaulting three Rela officers.
Ooi said any individual with good standing and holding a title should not resort to such actions.
“They must respect people in uniform. I hope if this news goes back to the Ruler who awarded the title, it should be taken away from the man,” he added.
