The Chinese ambassador based in Malaysia has promised support of his country in the investigation of Chinese crimes.
The reason is the uncovering of a Chinese online portal, which had lured with false investment promises. A total of 680 people were arrested, including seven 77 women. Another 100 people are said to have fled.
“We fully support this operation because our policy is we oppose any Chinese citizens committing crimes abroad no matter where in the world. We think they should be punished by the (domestic) law”, said Bai Tian, according to “Daily Express”.
Malaysia is currently benefiting from an investment boom from China. Many rich Chinese from the People’s Republic are uncertain about the Chinese government’s trade dispute with the USA. It is estimated that more than 20,000 new jobs will be created in the country. In the meantime, more than ten high-tech projects have been realised.
