Shin Min Daily News reported today (4 Jul) that 24 Malaysians protested outside Police Cantonment Complex yesterday afternoon. The protesters claimed that they were cheated of about $130,400 by a local investment company. Most of the protesters were from Johor Bahru and Malacca.

The group which had gone to the police station to lodge a joint complaint later unfurled a banner at Neil Road, just minutes away from the police station. The banner read “Return the money earned through our blood and sweat.”

The banner also had the pictures of a staff of the local investment company. The protesters allege that the staff had cheated them of their money. One protestor told the Chinese newspaper that about 10,000 Malaysians had invested their money in the company, and that together they may have lost $27 million.Follow us on Social Media
