A POLICE officer with two Rolex watches raised many questions. However, Integrity and Compliance Standard Department (JIPS) chief Datuk Seri Azri Ahmad said the watches were acquired with money gifted to the officer by his successful businesswoman mother and late father.“Initial investigations confirmed that these watches were purchased with money gifted from his mother, who was a successful businessperson, and his late father. “JIPS will continue the investigation from various angles,” he said in a statement today. The matter became public after a woman Mou Ei Leen recently pleaded not guilty to stealing two luxury watches from her police officer husband as their divorce proceedings unfolded. The woman is the wife of the police officer who owns the two Rolexes. On Friday (Oct 13), Mou pleaded not guilty in Magistrate’s Court to the charge of stealing two luxury watches belonging to her husband two years ago. The watches in question are a Rolex Sky Dweller watch (Model 326135) with serial number 0890R359 and a Rolex GMT Master-II 9 watch (Model 116718 LN) with serial number A9R56702. Since the matter went public in the woman’s case, X platform users are now debating Rolex watches.
Can someone explain please… he received money and he used it to buy 2 luxury Rolex watches! As though he couldn’t put it to other purchases? N why now, much later and when they are in midst of divorce! Why get @PDRMsia involved when he could sue her?

Meanwhile, others are being sarcastic.
Following that, a Twitter user @hazxman said:
(Congratulations to his parents. This is the first time I heard that a rich man allowed his child to become a police officer. This is a rare sight.)
Furthermore, X users feel that most of the wealthy in Malaysia would not allow their kids to work a regular job but there could be some exceptions, as the occupation of an individual may vary despite their background. – Oct 15, 2023
