Civil servant among four remanded over bribes in RM42mil tender


PUTRAJAYA: A civil servant was among four people arrested in connection with a supply tender for an enforcement agency worth RM42mil.

The four have been remanded for six days beginning Wednesday (June 16) to assist the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s investigation into the case.

The suspects, aged between 32 and 61, were brought before Magistrate Shah Wira Abdul Halim, who allowed the MACC prosecutors’ application for remand.

It is understood that they were arrested at around 10pm on Tuesday (June 15) at the MACC headquarters here.

According to sources, the suspects were believed to have demanded and paid bribes amounting to 5% of the project value in order to secure a tender to supply, process, print and post summonses issued by the said enforcement agency.

The case is being investigated under Section 16 (a) (A) of the MACC Act 2009.

In another case, a businessman was remanded for five days for his suspected involvement in illegal money laundering.

The suspect, 43, was arrested at 5.30pm on Tuesday.

He is believed to have obtained money through the sale of a Ferrari worth close to RM1mil that did not belong to him to purchase a luxury car for himself - a Lamborghini - which cost almost RM1.8mil.

The case is being investigated under Section 4 of the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001.
