MACC remands company owner linked to military supply deals


PUTRAJAYA: A company owner has been remanded by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), over allegations that he had given bribes to secure a contract to supply military equipment.

The 39-year-old man, who has a "Datuk Seri" title, will be remanded for four days after prosecutors obtained the go-ahead from magistrate Shah Wira Abdul Halim on Monday (May 20).

The man was arrested around 11pm on Sunday (May 19) night at the MACC headquarters here.

Last week, the chief executive officer and chief financial officer of a company were arrested and remanded by the MACC.

They were alleged to have accepted money from several contractors, who wanted to secure deals in supplying equipment for military armoured vehicles.

The project is said to be worth RM17mil.
