 BUKIT LANJAN: There’s no shortage of shameless and disgraceful Datuks and Tan Sris!

There’s certainly no shortage of shameless and disgraceful “knights” in Malaysia.

In fact, the perception of Malaysian “knights” is today in the pits, drowned in a cesspool of the organised crime and the underworld.

“These so called ‘knights’ are aplenty in Malaysia. They hit the news headlines regularly for all the wrong and shameful reasons,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

He said the latest news of a Datuk Seri and a Datuk being nabbed by police in a Bookcoin get-rich-quick scheme in the federal capital Kuala Lumpur “is a double-boost for the shameful and embarrassing state of state honorific titles”.

“We are being blasted with all sorts of news on crime and ‘mafia-style’ bullying involving people conferred with state titles unabated.

“When will the buck stop? Why are the ‘knights’ not screened by security before they are cleared for ‘knighthood’ eligibility or approval.

“Today, this shameful and embarrassing state of affairs is not only shaming the state and royalty, it has become the butt of jokes by Malaysians for the ‘knights’,” he added.

After the arrest of a Tan Sri in connection with an alleged RM2 million bribe offer to the Sultan of Johor, more people with titles conferred on them are likely to be called up by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission?
Syed Razak, who is Gerakan’s nominee to contest N.37 Bukit Lanjan in the coming 14th General Election (GE14), said the shameful and embarrassing state or “knights” in Malaysia “is today acute, to say the least”.

“There is absolutely no other choice left for the authorities to address the situation or check the rot. Take swift action, strip the errant ‘knights’ of their titles.

“Clean up the roll of ‘shame’, impose strict checks on those proposed to receive state awards and titles,” he added.

"Datuk Seri, Datuk arrested in Bookcoin get-rich-quick scheme


| August 9, 2017

Four victims had lodged police reports that they lost RM2.1 million in scheme that promised 30% returns every month.

SHAH ALAM: Selangor police detained two businessmen with the honorific “Datuk Seri” and “Datuk” titles in Kuala Lumpur last Thursday for allegedly masterminding the Bookcoin get-rich-quick scheme which resulted in losses to victims amounting to RM2.1 million.

State police chief Mazlan Mansor said the suspects, in their 40s, were picked up about 11am during a raid on two luxury houses in the vicinity of Desa Park City, Kuala Lumpur.

According to him, the arrests were the result of four police reports lodged earlier this month in relation with the investment scheme which had been active since mid-2016.

“Police investigations revealed that victims were duped into investing in the Bookcoin scheme after they were guaranteed returns of 1% per day and up to 30% per month from the amount invested.

“The investment scheme offered three packages, namely US$10,000 (gold package), US$1,000 (silver package) and US$100 (bronze package).

“Those who had invested between RM100,000 and RM500,000 did not receive the returns as promised,” he told a press conference here today.

Mazlan said during the raid, the police seized foreign currencies totalling RM1.06 million, 17 watches, two mobile phones, 35 designer handbags, laptop, 26 cheque books, 16 silver bar pieces, a Porsche Macan and a Toyota Vellfire, all valued at RM1.05 million.

He said according to preliminary investigations, some 200 individuals in the Klang Valley had invested in the scheme but to date, only four victims had lodged police reports.

“It is believed the suspects organised seminars and briefings on optimising returns through the Bookcoin investment.

“The victims realised they were deceived after they were given a password to study the return flow on the website but after a year, they failed to earn money from the investment,” he said, adding the two suspects were remanded to facilitate investigations.
