Four remanded in railway projects graft probe

KOTA KINABALU: Four people, including a deputy director of a government department, have been remanded in connection with a graft probe involving multi-million ringgit railway projects.

They were arrested in an operation on Monday (Jan 22).

The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) obtained a seven-day remand on Tuesday for the four, aged 37 to 58, after they were brought before Magistrate Cindy McJuce Balitus. The four suspects were unrepresented.

It is understood that the MACC has frozen bank accounts and seized vehicles in connection with the case. Graft investigators have also seized cash from the suspects' homes.

It is learned that the company being probed is alleged to have monopolised railway infrastructure projects.
