MACC detains two men in connection with procurement cartel case


JOHOR BARU: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has detained a Royal Malaysian Navy (TLDM) officer and a company owner for questioning over the recent “procurement cartel” case.

According to a source, the two men, aged 42 and 55, were arrested at the MACC Johor Baru office at 4pm on Tuesday (Feb 13) to help with the ongoing investigation.

Earlier, MACC had arrested three men, aged 28 to 47, who are believed to be the masterminds of the procurement cartel involving construction work worth more than RM9mil at the Navy camp in the state.

The three men were arrested by the Johor MACC at 6pm on Thursday (Jan 18) after they were believed to be the masterminds of the cartel involving 13 supplier companies that manage construction work at the camp.

Meanwhile, Johor MACC director Datuk Azmi Alias confirmed the arrests were to enable an investigation under Section 18 of the MACC Act 2009 for using false documents with the intention to deceive.

Both suspects will be brought to the Johor Baru Magistrate Court on Wednesday (Feb 14) at 8.30am for a remand order.
