PUTRAJAYA: Businessman G. Gnanaraja has been arrested by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and will face fresh charges on Monday (April 8).

He was arrested at the MACC headquarters here on Sunday (April 7) at around 11.40am.

Sources said prosecutors had received the green light from the Attorney General's Chambers to arrest Gnanaraja.

"He will be brought to court on Monday to face charges under the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act," said the source.

Gnanaraja has already been slapped with three charges of deceiving a managing director to pay him RM19mil in three transactions between July and August 2017.

He pleaded not guilty in the Sessions Court to accepting money to help resolve an MACC probe.
