The MACC has obtained a four-day remand order for two company officials to facilitate investigation into an attempt to bribe a government official.

The duo, the firm’s 49-year old CEO with a ‘Datuk Seri’ title and her 55-year-old adviser with the title ‘Datuk’, are being probed for the alleged attempt to bribe the government official with hundreds of thousands of ringgit.

The remand order was issued this morning by Putrajaya magistrate Shah Wira Abdul Halim.

Yesterday, an MACC source revealed that the duo had purportedly conspired to pay a sum of money to an enforcement officer of a ministry in return for the officer to turn a blind eye to their company’s collection of deposits for an illegal investment in July 2017.

The Datuk Seri was arrested at MACC around 5.30pm yesterday, while MACC picked up her adviser at Dutamas Raya earlier in the day, at 11.30am.

A scam allegation involving the Datuk Seri and her company was highlighted by the media in 2017, after an MP led a group of Chinese nationals to lodge a report at the Dang Wangi police station.

They lodged a report after claiming to have lost between RM62,000 and RM437,000 by investing in the scheme operated by the company in 2016.

The MP had also insinuated that a former top cop, who was then the president of the company, was involved in running the scheme, which led to the former top cop and the Datuk Seri to issue a letter of demand against the MP to withdraw and apologise for his allegation.

In August 2017, the former top cop tendered his resignation from his position in the company.

Asked if the MACC would record a statement from the former top cop, MACC investigations director Simi Abd Ghani said: “It’s too early to confirm as we are still in the preliminary investigation.”

However, Simi said, the case that MACC is investigating is not related to the reports by the group of Chinese nationals in 2017, but on the attempt to bribe the enforcement officer, which took place in July 2017.

Malaysiakini is withholding the names of the two suspects until they are charged in court.

PUTRAJAYA: Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) hari ini menahan seorang wanita bergelar “Datuk Seri” dan seorang lelaki bergelar “Datuk” bagi membantu siasatan kes memberi suapan kepada penguatkuasa sebuah kementerian, yang dianggarkan mencecah ratusan ribu ringgit.

Menurut sumber, wanita berusia 49 tahun itu merupakan ketua pegawai eksekutif sebuah syarikat pembekalan.

Dia ditahan kira-kira pukul 5.30 petang di ibu pejabat SPRM selepas hadir memberi keterangan.

Lelaki berusia 55 tahun yang merupakan penasihat syarikat itu pula ditahan pada kira-kira 11.30 pagi di kawasan Dutamas Raya, Kuala Lumpur, kata sumber.

Siasatan awal mendapati kedua-dua individu bersubahat membayar wang suapan kepada penguatkuasa sebuah kementerian sebagai balasan untuk tidak mengambil tindakan terhadap syarikat mereka yang menjalankan aktiviti mengutip deposit bagi pelaburan yang tidak sah sekitar Julai 2017, katanya.

Pengarah Siasatan SPRM, Simi Abd Ghani ketika dihubungi mengesahkan penahanan itu.

SPRM akan mendapatkan perintah tahanan reman terhadap kedua-dua suspek di Mahkamah Majistret Putajaya pagi esok.

Siasatan dijalankan mengikut Seksyen 17(b) Akta SPRM.

PUTRAJAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has arrested a chief executive officer and an advisor of a company to help investigations into claims of giving bribes to enforcement officers of a ministry.

They were said to have given bribes to the officers amounting to several hundred thousands of ringgit last year.

The 49-year-old CEO, a Datuk Seri, was arrested around 5.30pm Thursday (April 25) at Dutamas Raya in Kuala Lumpur.

Sources believe that the two were working in cohorts to bribe enforcement officers of a ministry to not take action against the company for illegal deposit activities sometime in 2017.

He said the two will be taken to the Putrajaya magistrate’s court to be remanded on Friday (April 26).
