PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) raided a Tan Sri's residence in connection with a corruption case involving procurement and management of the government's fleet of vehicles worth RM4.5bil.

Along with raiding the residence of the Tan Sri, who is a businessman, the MACC also raided four companies, including a government vehicle supplier.

Sources told a Malay daily that over 100 private accounts and companies under the raided companies' control were also reportedly obtained by the MACC for further investigation.

MACC chief commissioner Tan Sri Azam Baki and the commission's Investigation Division senior director Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Hashim, were both reported to have confirmed the raid.
