The whereabouts of self-proclaimed Chinese millionaire Zhang Jian re­main unknown, Oriental Daily reported.

Although the founder of the controversial Yun Shu Mao (YSLM) multi-level marketing business was said to have attended his bodyguard's wedding in Kuala Lumpur on Sunday night, the company's charity wing chairman Datuk John Lee Kim Tian refused to disclose the venue.

China Press reported that journalists who were invited to cover the ceremony had boycotted the event due to several restrictions.

Lee, who turned up two hours late at a YSLM branch in Sri Petaling, Selangor, had ordered the reporters to board a bus prepared by the company without disclosing the venue of the ceremony at 8pm.

The reporters, who were also not allowed to bring their smartphones and laptops to the ceremony, decided to boycott the event.

Local newspapers had reported that the Domestic Trade, Coopera­tives and Consumerism Ministry would take necessary action if Zhang Jian returned to Malaysia.

Zhang Jian was said to have taken a short break from a 100-day ordination programme at a temple in Thailand to attend the wedding.
