PUTRAJAYA: A former officer to an ex-minister has been remanded for three days as investigators probe allegations that he "arranged" projects involving a certain ministry under the previous administration.
The 50-year-old Datuk will be held until May 2 after magistrate Irza Zulaikha Rohanuddin allowed an application by Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) prosecutors for his remand on Tuesday (April 30).
The suspect was arrested on Monday (April 29) when he turned up at the MACC headquarters to answer questions pertaining to the allegations.
He is said to have received money from contractors for helping them to secure projects with the ministry.
This include a contract to supply aircraft equipment valued at RM1.8mil.
