Malaysia Federal police have made four more arrests in ongoing money laundering investigations  tied to an airline collapse.

It relates to the recent collapse of budget carrier MYAirline.

MYAirline co-founder Datuk Allan Goh Hwan Hua and his family were arrested recently over suspected money laundering.

The airline abruptly shut down leaving hundreds of customers stranded.

Four more people have just been arrested.

Three are employees of affiliated company i-Serve Technology & Vacation Sdn Bhd, while the other is a lawyer representing i-Serve Technology.

The employees also held directors’ positions at various firms owned by the MYAirline co-founder.

Goh is also a shareholder in i-Serve.

He was arrested and bailed earlier this month with investigations still ongoing.

He is being investigated under the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing, and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act.

MYAirline collapsed on 12 October and promised refunds to customers.

However, it has been unable to process the refunds worth about RM22 million due to lack of funds.
