PUTRAJAYA: Graft investigators are carrying out a probe to determine whether the RM400,000 renovation work conducted at the home of Lembaga Tabung Haji (TH) chief operating officer Datuk Adi Azuan Abdul Ghani has anything to do with the company that received a RM15mil contract from the pilgrims’ board.

Sources said preliminary findings pointed towards “element of corruption.

“The corruption came in the form of renovation work done on the suspect’s house.

“We believe this was a form of reward after the company was awarded a contract to rebrand TH’s branches,” said a source.

Adi Azuan has been remanded until Saturday as investigators look into the case.

The pilgrim fund board had, on Nov 30, lodged a police report over the misuse of the pilgrims’ monies and for misrepresentation in a corporate deal.

Two reports were lodged against former chairman Datuk Seri Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim and former chief executive officers Tan Sri Ismee Ismail and Datuk Seri Johan Abdullah.

Adi Azuan’s name was also implicated in the report along with chief financial officer Datuk Rozaida Omar, legal adviser Hazlina Mohd Khalid and senior general manager for corporate services and real estate Rifina Md Ariff.
