Former enforcement director remanded a week for alleged bribery


ALOR SETAR: A former government agency enforcement director has been remanded for seven days from Monday (Jan 24) to facilitate investigations into a corruption case involving a RM3.1mil bid for a public cleaning works contract.

The remand order was issued by a Magistrate’s Court in Kuala Lumpur after an application by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

According to a source, the suspect was remanded in Kuala Lumpur to help with investigations into bribes from a contractor via another enforcement officer who was detained earlier.

Kedah MACC director Datuk Shaharom Nizam Abd Manap confirmed the arrest and said the case was being investigated under Section 16 of the MACC Act 2009. – Bernama
