Complaint lodged with the Police

Report No: DAMANSARA/015162/11
Lodged on 5th October 2011 at the Commercial Crimes Unit, Bukit Aman.

Prior to filing the police report, selected investors representing all the investors were requested by the Malaysian Police to hold a presentation outlining the case in full to the head of the Commercial Crime Department ACP Latt Mazura Mansur and her colleagues.

A 44 slide Power Point presentation was given on 4th October 2011. Those present were shown the alleged fake invoices, emails and documents that had been supplied by Doxport. The investors were assured by ACP Latt Mazura Mansur that a full investigation would be conducted quickly and would include the Money Laundering Investigation Division being instructed to do the same.

The police investigation has taken over two years to complete.

Malaysian Money Laundering Investigation Division

An investigation by the Malaysian Money Laundering Investigation Division, which should have been started simultaneously with the Police investigation, was started 15 months later and has been completed.

Complaint lodged with the Malaysian Communications & Multimedia Commission (MCMC)

Report No: 0095/10/11
Complaint lodged on 30th September 2011

According to MCMC "If a party provides VOIP services in Malaysia, they would require an ASP licence. If the party also deploys its infrastructure or manages bandwidth both the NFP and NSP licences are required. Any party providing a licensable activity without the requisite licence would be committing an offence relating to the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998."

Contrary to representations made to investors Doxport Technologies Sdn. Bhd. was never licenced by MCMC to operate in Malaysia. A huge amount of evidence including details of location in which such activities were being carried out, customers, documented evidence & witnesses was supplied to MCMC investigating officers.

The MCMC investigation took some 14 months to complete. Their findings were submitted to the Deputy Public Prosecutor’s Office. The DPP’s decision was not to charge Doxport Technologies Sdn. Bhd. due to insufficient evidence.

However, over 6 months ago, further proof was supplied to MCMC. As of yet, there has been no response from them in re-opening any investigation

  • 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].
