Woman remanded over RM24.2mil theft from KK bank accounts
The woman, in her 40s, is the latest suspect to be remanded in the investigation into RM24.2 million missing from several fixed deposit accounts in a bank in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.
Kota Kinabalu: A woman has been remanded for three days from tomorrow to assist in the investigation of a theft of RM24.2 million from several fixed deposit accounts at a bank.

The woman, in her 40s, is the latest suspect to be remanded to assist in the investigation.

The remand order was issued by magistrate Stephanie Sherron Abbie at the Kota Kinabalu magistrates’ court today following a police application.

The same court also allowed the remand order for 10 other suspects in the case, aged 22 to 53, to be extended for a further three days.

Yesterday, the same court also allowed the remand of a businessman to be extended until Sunday.

On Wednesday, Bukit Aman commercial crime investigation department director Ramli Yoosuf said 13 people, including four bank employees, had been detained to assist in the investigation.

He said individuals from inside and outside the bank conspired to withdraw the money, which could only have been done through internal collusion within the bank.

He said the arrests were made after receiving four reports from account holders and bank staff in early June in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, when the victims realised there were suspicious cash withdrawals made in Kota Kinabalu involving several fixed deposit accounts.
