PETALING JAYA: Police are probing MyWatch chairman R Sri Sanjeevan on 14 charges, including for falsifying documents, cheating, defamation and money laundering, reported The Sun today.
The daily quoted police sources as saying that the 32-year-old is also being probed for offences related to the Immigration Act and under the Anti-Money Laundering Act 2001.
According to the source, investigators also discovered the suspect, who is currently under remand, has at least RM1 million in cash and assets.
It is also learnt that investigators may invoke the Prevention of Crime Act to detain Sanjeevan, said the report.
Sanjeevan was arrested on June 23 by a team of police officers from the Bukit Aman Anti-Vice, Gambling and Secret Societies Division after he allegedly received RM25,000 in “protection money” from a complainant, a 38-year-old illegal four-digit operator.
Police have also revealed that there are at least six other reports against Sanjeevan.
