Four marine engineering firm owners remanded over alleged bribery involving project worth RM10mil


PUTRAJAYA: Owners of four marine engineering firms have been detained for allegedly giving bribes to secure a project worth RM10mil involving an enforcement agency.

Two of the suspects - a man and a woman - were remanded for four days beginning June 21, while the other two will be held for two days.

The remand orders were issued by Magistrate Shah Wira Abdul Halim, who allowed an application by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) prosecutors to hold the suspects in custody.

It is learnt that the suspects - two men and two women aged between 40 and 71 - were arrested at the MACC headquarters here on Sunday (June 20), after they were summoned to have their statements recorded.

Sources said the suspects were believed to have bribed an officer with the enforcement agency as a reward for assisting their companies to secure supply, services and maintenance works beginning 2018 until now.

The case is being investigated under Section 17(a) of the MACC Act.
