JOHOR BARU: A secretary at a state government-linked company (GLC) has been remanded for two days for allegedly falsifying documents to attain approval for a payment from the company’s management last year.

It was learned that the suspect had prepared a fake meeting minute for the company’s board of directors to get approval for higher dividends, director allowance and incentive payments for the company’s secretary and accounting officer.

The suspect was also said to have gotten the documents signed by the company’s former director to confuse the management of the GLC and have the payment approved.

The remand order for the 35-year-old man was granted by magistrate R. Salini at the Johor Baru Magistrate’s Court here on Tuesday (Oct 4).

He arrived at the court at about 9am with handcuffs and accompanied by Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) officers.

The order was issued under Section 18 of the MACC Act 2009 to allow further investigation on the suspect.
