Kedah MACC nabs father and son for submitting false documents


ALOR SETAR: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has arrested a father and son for submitting documents containing false information to supply cooking oil four years ago.

A source said the suspects, in their 50s and 20s, were arrested Monday (Feb 26) night and Tuesday (Feb 27) morning when they arrived separately at the Kedah MACC office here to have their statements recorded.

He said the suspects were believed to have used payment claim documents containing false information for the purpose of supplying cooking oil around Kedah, Perlis and Penang, while the supply was not provided.

"They are suspected of using the licence of the company they work for to make false claims for 1kg packets of subsidised cooking oil from a ministry, between June and July 2020.

"The claims submitted contained false information to supply cooking oil to retailers and wholesalers around the three states,” he said.

Kedah MACC director Ahmad Nizam Ismail confirmed the arrests and said the case was being investigated under Section 18 of the MACC Act 2009.

He said that the two suspects were released on MACC bail. – Bernama
