MACC probes RM20,000 souvenir supply to Baitulmal office

SEREMBAN: Anti-graft officers are investigating a civil servant over irregularities in the supply of souvenirs to a Baitulmal office.

It is said that the 33-year-old man, who was detained yesterday by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, has an interest in the company which supplied the goods valued at RM20,865.

The suspect allegedly used his position to propose and approve the application in appointing the company to supply souvenirs to the Kuala Pilah District Baitulmal Office in June 2017.

MACC is investigating him under Section 23 of the MACC Act 2009 which carries a maximum 20-year jail sentence and a fine of RM10,000 or five times the bribe amount.

Lawyer A Kriyshanaa appeared on behalf of the suspect.
