KUALA LUMPUR, May 20 — A dinner banquet celebrating the second anniversary of investment scheme JJ Poor To Rich (JJPTR) saw poor turnout among investors, with numerous vacant seats seen at the Berjaya Times Square Hotel.
The vegetarian banquet was scheduled to be held at the hotel’s Manhattan Hall at 7pm and attended by “a thousand” of the scheme’s investors.
According to news portal The Star Online, only a tiny fraction of the hall was occupied, with none of the JJPTR employees in sight. JJPTR had earlier announced that each ticket for the dinner cost RM400.
JJPTR founder Johnson Lee and his two aides were rearrested in Klang shortly after their release yesterday and were taken to Penang to aid investigation into the money scheme there.
