JOHOR BARU: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has remanded a civil servant over allegations of bribery amounting to RM23,500.

Johor Baru magistrate’s court assistant registrar, Nurhidayah Abd Mana, issued the four-day remand order against the chief assistant district officer here on Tuesday (Oct 20).

The suspect, being accompanied by a few MACC officers, earlier arrived at the court complex at about 9.30am Tuesday, wearing the MACC lock-up outfit.

It is learnt that MACC officers detained a 36-year-old suspect at his office at about 2.45pm on Monday (Oct 19) to help with the ongoing investigations.

It is learnt that initial investigations revealed that the suspect has requested a bribe from a contractor as repayment for getting 12 contracts that have been issued by a district office in May this year.

The MACC has also confiscated cash worth RM10,000 during the arrest.

The case is being investigated under Section 17A of the MACC Act 2009 for Soliciting/Receiving Gratification (Bribes).
