PUTRAJAYA: An MIC politician, who is already facing charges for submitting false claims, will be taken to court again today – this time for money laundering involving RM6mil.
The 64-year-old former party vice-president – a Tan Sri – was arrested at about 2.15pm yesterday at the state Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission office in Johor Baru.
Sources said the fresh charges against him was a follow-up to his previous case. He is believed to have banked in money he obtained from making false claims into several accounts, including his company and personal accounts.

MACC deputy chief commissioner (operations) Datuk Seri Azam Baki confirmed the arrest.
“We have arrested him so that we can bring him to the court,” he said when contacted.
