MACC arrests top officer in Perak Malay Chamber of Commerce


KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has arrested the top management officer of the Perak Malay Chamber of Commerce in connection with a court case.

According to a MACC source, the 47-year-old man was nabbed after he surrendered himself at the commission’s headquarters in Putrajaya at 4pm today.

“Right now, he is being investigated in connection with the prosecution of a corruption case in court.

“The case involves land development projects and the supply of building materials in Perak in 2014,” the source said.

MACC, however, has yet to seize any documents or properties involving the suspect.

MACC deputy chief commissioner (operations) Azam Baki, when contacted, confirmed the arrest.

“We will record his statement first before taking any further action. He will be taken to the Putrajaya Court tomorrow for remand,” he said.
