Water company officers arrested in RM3.3mil Johor bribery case


A source says MACC detained the two men at the anti-graft agency’s Selangor headquarters yesterday afternoon.

PETALING JAYA: Two senior officers at a water supply company in Johor have been arrested for allegedly accepting RM3.3 million in bribes.

Sinar Harian reported a source as saying that the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) detained the men, aged 36 and 40, at the agency’s Selangor headquarters at around 2pm yesterday.

The source said that MACC’s investigation stemmed from several complaints filed last year about the suspects allegedly receiving bribes from the owners of two contracting companies.

“It is understood that this was in return for assisting the respective companies in obtaining service and supply contracts from the water supply company,” said the source.

“The suspects produced documents containing false information regarding an application for donations for a programme amounting to RM3.3 million, even though the programme was not fully implemented.”

When contacted, Johor MACC director Azmi Alias confirmed the arrests.

The case is being investigated under Section 16(a)(A) and Section 18 of the MACC Act 2009.

The suspects will be brought to the Johor Bahru magistrates’ court for a remand application this morning. - FMT
