Sanjeevan: I’m being probed under Anti-Money Laundering Act


PUTRAJAYA: Malaysian Crime Watch (MyWatch) Chairman R Sri Sanjeevan today revealed that on top of the corruption charges levelled against him, he was also being investigated for offences under the Anti-Money Laundering Act (Amla).

“They (police) have frozen my personal and company accounts. I just got a call from Bukit Aman this morning asking me to have my statement recorded this coming Monday.

“So I’m expecting to be charged under Amla soon.”

He was speaking to reporters after lodging a report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) today against Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar whose brother, Sanjeevan claims, owns a shooting academy.

Sanjeevan has been in and out of court on multiple charges of extortion.

The “crime-buster” said he was expecting to have more charges brought against him.

“If that is the price to pay, that is the price I will pay.

“People have said that I am upset over the action taken against me, hence the exposes I’m making on the police force. However, I have been exposing people since 2012.

“I have also just received good evidence in the form of a video clip which shows the act of possible corruption and abuse of power in the police force. Hopefully, I can release it next week.”

Sanjeevan was first arrested on June 22 on suspicion of criminal intimidation and extortion.

According to news reports, the 32-year-old, who lives in Kajang, was picked up by a Bukit Aman Anti-Vice, Gambling and Secret Societies Division team as soon as he allegedly received RM25,000 in “protection money” from a complainant, a 38-year-old illegal four-digit operator.

Khalid had earlier said that since his arrest, more reports have been lodged against Sanjeevan by those claiming to have been extorted by the latter.
