Cops to charge personnel in cahoots with Nicky Gang


JOHOR BAHRU: The Johor police will not hand over the list of names of officers and personnel found to be in cahoots with the Nicky Gang, to the Bukit Aman Integrity and Standard Compliance Department (JIPS).

Instead, Johor police chief Datuk Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay said they would be brought to court for their involvemen­t in organised crime activities.

He also did not rule out the possibilit­y of the involvemen­t of more police personnel in the organised crime syndicate believed to be led by fugitive businessma­n, Datuk Seri

Nicky Liow Soon Hee.

Ayob said 24 enforcemen­t personnel had been previously detained under Op Benteng and charged in court for their involvemen­t in organised crimes.

“This is the format that we will use for Datuk Seri Nicky’s case. We are still updating the investigat­ion paper, insya Allah, once it is completed, we will arrest them.

“I want to take action for the organised crime offences they committed which, for me, is the best way,” he told reporters at the Johor police contingent headquarte­rs, here, on Wednesday.

On Wednesday, Bukit Aman JIPS director Datuk Zamri Yahya was reportedas­sayingthat­thedepartm­ent is in the midst of obtaining the names of police personnel allegedly involved in colluding with the Nicky Gang.
