Three individuals including the former CEO of a bank subsidiary were remanded for five days from today to assist the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s (MACC) investigation into a bribery case involving more than RM24 million.
The remand order was issued by magistrate Mohd Dinie Shazwan Ab Shukor against the former CEO, in her 50s, an unemployed 58-year-old man, and a 53-year-old financial consultant after MACC made an application at the Putrajaya Magistrate's Court.
According to sources, the three were detained by Putrajaya MACC at 6pm yesterday when they presented themselves to give their statements.
The sources said they were suspected of receiving bribes of more than RM24 million as an inducement to approve loan applications of more than RM294 million by a local company.
The case is being investigated under Section 16 (a)(A) of the MACC Act 2009.
Meanwhile, in Kuala Lumpur, MACC said it was tracking down a witness to assist in investigations into a corruption case in Selangor this year.
It identified him as L Mohan Raj, 26, whose last known address was No H-9 Rumah Kos Rendah Peringkat 3 and 4, Jerantut in Pahang.
Those with information are urged to contact investigating officer Ahmad Muaz Safuan Mohd Ali at 011-16133661 or [email protected]
