MACC arrests Navy man over false claims

JOHOR BARU: A Royal Malaysian Navy logistics chief has been arrested by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) for allegedly making false claims amounting to RM24,250.

The 36-year-old man from the Sungai Lunchoo Navy Reserve Force base here was arrested at the MACC office yesterday.

According to the MACC, investigations found that the man had abetted and certified a government order while also making false claims for printing services involving paper bags and banners to the KD Sultan Ismail navy base in Pengerang despite not receiving the supply.

Johor MACC director Datuk Azmi Alias said a remand application would be submitted to the Johor Baru Magistrate’s Court today.

The case is being investigated under Section 18 of the MACC Act 2009, which carries a maximum jail term of 20 years and a fine of five times the value of the offence committed or RM10,000, whichever is higher.
