When a private investigator approached a "friend" who worked in a bank and asked for information relating to the accounts of a politician, the clerk was willing to help. She says she thought she was helping the police when "Ramesh" asked for the information. It's the first prosecution of its kind in Malaysia.

In Malaysia, BAFIA, the primary legislation relating to the financial sector, provides very strong bank secrecy protection.
