PUTRAJAYA: A chief executive officer and a company advisor have been remanded for four days for allegedly bribing the enforcement officers of a ministry.

Magistrate Shah Wira Abdul Halim ordered for the two to be remanded until April 29 to allow the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to probe the allegations.

The two will be investigated under Section 17(b) of the MACC Act for bribery.

The suspects were brought to the magistrate's court here at 9.30am on Friday (April 26).

Handcuffed and clad in the unmistakable orange MACC lock-up garb, the two hid their faces from the media as they were brought into the court complex.

The company adviser is a 55-year-old with a Datuk title. He was arrested at 11am on Thursday (April 25) in Kuala Lumpur.

Later at 5.30pm, the 49-year-old chief executive officer, who has a Datuk Seri title, was arrested at the MACC headquarters after she came to give her statement.

Sources believe that the two were working in cohorts to bribe enforcement officers of a ministry to not take action against the company for illegal deposit activities sometime in 2017.
