MACC arrests duo for falsely claiming over RM40,000

GEORGE TOWN: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has detained two people for making false claims of more than RM40,000 in 2021.

A source with MACC said the suspects - aged 29 and 56 - were detained at the Penang graft buster's office here at about 4.30pm on Friday (Aug 19).

The source said the 29-year-old suspect is a female senior executive of a company while the second suspect is the owner of a training company.

They were believed to be involved in making false claims by providing fake details of five software computer trainings worth more than RM40,000 in 2021. The trainings never took place.

Selangor MACC director Datuk Alias Salim confirmed the arrests.

He said the suspects will be brought to the Butterworth Court on Saturday (Aug 20) for a remand order.

The case is investigated under Section 18 of the MACC Act 2009.
