PUTRAJAYA (Bernama): A company director with the title "Datuk" and two others were ordered to be in remand for three days from Wednesday (Jan 23) for alleged corruption and making false claims amounting to RM1.8mil.

The order against the three suspects, including a woman, was issued by Magistrate Izza Zulaika Ruhanuddin following an application by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

According to the graft-busters, they abused their positions and received gratification from a supplier for the purchase of factory equipment.

They were arrested when they presented themselves at the MACC office here Tuesday (Jan 22).

Besides the 44-year-old company director with the "Datuk" title, the others are a 51-year-old company director and a 29-year-old female insurance agent.

In another case, Magistrate Izza Zulaikaa also granted an application by MACC to remand a former senior product manager of a company for allegedly receiving gratification of more than RM2mil.

The 40-year-old man will be remanded for three days until this Friday.

He is believed to have received gratification from a company for approving a credit note for the purpose of rebate, incentives and advertisement for computer components to the company agents. – Bernama
