Even "datuks" borrow money from "ah long"

A “Datuk” who borrowed RM700,000 from an Ah Long has disappeared.

The Johor Baru MCA public complaints bureau deputy chairman Michael Tay said the “Datuk” accumulated the debt after he started gambling online.

He added that he tried to negotiate with the Ah Long on the Datuk's behalf but the 37-year-old had since disappeared.

Note: Datuk is a federal title that has been conferred since 1965. Ah Long is a Chinese slang for loan shark
