PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is hunting for the key planner in a corruption case involving the Jana Wibawa programme.
The person, who is known as "Datuk Roy", is in his 50s and had previously been accused in court and sentenced to prison for corruption.
Previously, on March 9, the MACC arrested four individuals aged between 40 and 50, including an MACC officer and a woman, for allegedly asking for and accepting a bribe of RM400,000 to avoid investigation into the case.
The woman was released on bail while the other three suspects have been remanded until March 13.
MACC chief commissioner Tan Sri Azam Baki confirmed the manhunt was ongoing.
He added that the MACC would not compromise if any MACC officer is found to be involved in illegal activities.
The Jana Wibawa programme was approved for implementation by the Cabinet in November 2020.
It was aimed at assisting bumiputra contractors to weather the economic hardship during the Covid-19 pandemic.
