PUTRAJAYA: Two men who thought they could get away with pretending to be Home Ministry officials with the authority to approve quotas for foreign workers are being held for four days by graft investigators over allegations of bribery amounting to RM75,000
A third suspect who is on the run is on the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s radar.
The two “officials” aged 54 and 25, will be remanded until March 17 after Magistrate Noraisyah Mohd Yusof granted an application by the MACC to detain the suspects for questioning.
They were arrested at the Awan Besar RnR area at 4.40pm on Wednesday following a complaint lodged with the MACC.
The two men had posed as ministry official, asking for a payment of RM75,000 to help a contractor obtain approval from “their ministry” to enable him to employ foreign workers.
