Company director remanded for accepting cash from 'Datuk Seri' to launder money

PUTRAJAYA: A company director has been remanded for allegedly accepting money from a "Datuk Seri" to carry out money laundering activities.

The 45-year-old suspect is believed to have received around RM100,000 between 2016 and 2017 as payment to bring money into the country.

The money that was brought in by the company director were proceeds from investment scams and were “brought in” via several money changers.

Sources with knowledge of the investigation said the money was then injected into the account of a company owned by a high-profile individual.

The suspect was arrested at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission headquarters here at 4.45pm on Wednesday.

Investigators brought the suspect before Magistrate Irza Zulaikha Rohanuddin who allowed for him to be remanded for five days until Feb 13.

MACC senior director of investigation Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Hashim confirmed that the graft investigators were looking into the case.
