Seeking Justice for UK Families
About us

A Summary

The British Victims of Investing in Malaysia is a group of 60 'families' that invested several million dollars in a company based in Malaysia, in what they felt was an emerging, secure and accountable economy and system, a place that they could do business-in and make an honest return on their investment for themselves and their families here in the UK.

In 2008/9 through Fiscal City Capital Sdn. Bhd., funds were invested into the company Doxport Technologies Sdn. Bhd. whose chairman and director was Dato' Seri Abdul Azim Bin Mohd Zabidi: the ex-Chairman of Bank Simpanan Nasional Berhad; a former Member of the Steering Committee of the International Investment Funds Association; a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (UK) and the ex-Treasurer of the main UMNO political party.

It is alleged that Doxport Technologies Sdn. Bhd. solicited investment funds on a false basis using fraudulent invoices and documents and misappropriated investor's funds amounting to some $4,000,000

The demand of the families is non-malicious and plain. They are seeking natural justice to take its course, the perpetrators brought to book. As a early signatory to the International Convention on the Settlement of Investment Disputes and with its stated commitment to creating a safe and equitable environment for investment, the families appeal to the Malaysian executive, judiciary and representatives to support and facilitate the due process, which is in the interest of Malaysia's international reputation as a reliable hub for inward investment and trade.

British Investors & several MPs are concerned with the speed and scope of the investigations.

Police Investigation

On 5th October 2011, British investors lodged a police report at the Commercial Crime Division, Bukit Perdana.

To date only one suspect, namely Doxport's CEO Sivalingam Thechinamoorthy has been charged with nine counts of criminal breach of trust, money-laundering and using forged documents.

The other director not charged is Dato Azim Zabidi and Gurmeet Kaur (Sivalingam Thechinamoorthy's wife).

Money Laundering Investigation

  • Why did it take 14 months after the complaint was lodged with the police for the 'Money Laundering Investigation Division' to start their investigation to trace and freeze funds?
  • The 'Money Laundering Investigation Division' has yet to freeze any funds?
  • Why have alleged misappropriated funds deposited with Doxport Directors not been frozen?

British investors have met with several Malaysian VIPs including Prime Minister Mohd Najib Tun Razak on two occasions where investors were assured that Malaysian justice can be relied upon.

The British investors are concerned that there are many discrepancies, some as stated above, in the criminal investigation of their case and require that the justice the Malaysian Prime Minister promised is seen to be done and every effort is made to trace and freeze funds if required.

On Wednesday 20th February 2013, Investors filed a Civil Suit at the High Court of Malaya in Kuala Lumpur, the suit includes details on all the alleged fraudulent documents supplied and the participation of each member of Doxport Technologies Sdn. Bhd. To obtain a copy in Malay or English, please view 'The Case' section on this website.

Investors are supported by several Lords and a great number of British MPs & the Foreign & Commonwealth Office.

  • The Anti-Money Laundering Authority has also thus far failed to produce a report despite requirements under Malaysian regulations.

    Rt. Hon. Lynne Featherstone MP

  • I won't comment on Cameron, who should know what to do to help his own citizens. It is a good opportunity for him to raise the issue with Najib rather just gush out meaningless praise when there is so much evidence to the contrary.

    For Najib, as the leader of Malaysia, he should not hide but be open about this issue because it is a long outstanding case and has the support of many top people from both UK as well as Malaysia. These people are not frauds or troublemakers but investors who took the initiative to invest in our country. They deserve to be treated better and not be snubbed like this by our PM.

  • Why is it taking them [police] so long to take action? Is it because he has political immunity, or there are people backing him?

    This is an embarrassment to the democracy of our country. We don't even have the courtesy to respond to the British citizens [MPs].
