Just freed after posting bail on charges of assaulting three People’s Volunteer Corps members, a businessman with the “Datuk Seri” title was rearrested in connection with a drug case.

Liow Soon Hee, 29, was rearrested by an anti-narcotics team from the Dang Wangi police station outside the Ampang Jaya Sessions Court as soon as he had posted bail totalling RM17,000 for the four charges he faced in connection with the alleged assault of three Rela members namely Lee Weng Poh, 27, Melvin Cheong Mun Khai, 21, and Leong Jun Jie, 21, at the compound of the Kou Ong Yah Temple, Jalan Merdeka, Kampung Baru Ampang here at 6.30am on Oct 27.

Melvin, Lee and Leong, each suffered head, eye and abdomen injuries after being allegedly beaten and kicked by the suspect.

The victims claimed that the incident occurred when they had asked the 'Datuk Seri' to move his Toyota Vellfire MPV parked on the side of the main road, as it was obstructing traffic.

Selangor CID chief, SAC Fadzil Ahmad when contacted confirmed the rearrest and that Liow was brought from the court complex to the Dang Wangi police at 5pm.

“He (Liow) is an individual police are looking for in relation to a past drug case,” he said.
