SC seeks public and Interpol’s assistance to find Ricky Wong of Asia Media Group Bhd

The Securities Commission Malaysia (SC) is seeking information or assistance from the public to establish the whereabouts of 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).

The SC had also on 3 April 2020 sought Interpol’s assistance 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.

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.

Information received from the public will be protected under the Whistleblower Protection Act 2010. The Act protects whistle-blowers by ensuring information received is confidential, and offers immunity from civil and criminal action as well as protection against detrimental action.
