SHAH ALAM (Bernama): The remand for two individuals including a businessman with the title "Datuk Seri" has been extended for four days from Monday (March 15) to assist investigations into receiving RM300,000 in bribes from one individual to release 22 Chinese nationals detained at an Immigration depot.
The remand order up to Thursday (March 18) was issued by Magistrate Sabreena Bakar @ Bahari at the Magistrate’s Court here upon receiving an application from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).
Last Wednesday, a 44-year-old Datuk Seri and a woman, 41, who was believed to be an agent for foreign workers were remanded for six days to assist investigations into the case.
An MACC source said the male suspect allegedly claimed he could settle the detention of 22 Chinese nationals suspected to be involved in online gambling and Macau scam while the woman was acting as a middleman.
The case is being investigated under Section 16 (a)(A) of the MACC Act 2009. - Bernama
