Feeling the heat: Three held for false claims over RM400,000 thermal paper purchase

KUALA LUMPUR: Three company directors have been detained by graft-busters for allegedly making false claims over the purchase of thermal printing paper worth more than RM400,000.

They comprise two brothers in their 40s and 50s, who are directors of a public-listed company, suspected of colluding with a woman in her 30s, a director of another firm.

Sources said the brothers had allegedly conspired to make 16 payments to the woman, who had been making false claims since 2020.

All three suspects have been remanded until Saturday (Jan 28) after an application was granted by magistrate Irza Zulaikha Rohanuddin at a Putrajaya Magistrate's Court on Thursday (Jan 26).

Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) senior director (Investigations) Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Hashim confirmed that the suspects were detained after giving their statements at MACC headquarters on Wednesday (Jan 25) night.

"The case is being investigated under Section 18 of the MACC Act 2009," he said.
