PUTRAJAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has remanded another three individuals in connection with the Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd (PCSB) graft case.

Two individuals were brought to the Putrajaya Magistrate Court at 10am on Friday to be remanded. A third was brought in later. 

All three were remanded for seven days.

On Tuesday, MACC arrested three individuals in relation to the case, including a 45-year-old PCSB project delivery manager.

The other two were a 57-year-old director of a company that carried out work for PCSB, and a 28-year-old former technical assistant of PCSB.

Magistrate Nur Esfahanie Tasnim Wan Ab Rahman allowed the three to be remanded for six days.

According to sources, the trio are believed to have collaborated in submitting three falsified invoices between April and June 2015.

The invoices were inflated amounts for a drilling rig project but no work was ever carried out.

However, PCSB had made full payment to the company.
