3 Senior Officers of Government Linked Company Arrested by MACC


Sources: Officer worked with private companies for lucrative deals





PUTRAJAYA: For the past 10 years, a senior officer of a government-linked company (GLC) worked hand-in-glove with the bosses of two private companies to help them secure infrastructure projects believed to be worth several hundred million ringgit.

The general manager is said to have received kickbacks of up to RM100,000 each time a deal was concluded.

The 56-year-old man, who was picked up by Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) officers from his house in Seremban on Thursday, has been remanded for five days to assist investigations into alleged power abuse and corruption.

Also remanded were a managing director and a chief executive officer – both aged 51 – of the two companies. One of them is a Datuk.


The two contractors were arrested around midnight when they came to the MACC headquarters to have their statements recorded.

The three men were brought before magistrate Nik Isfahanie Tasnim Wan Ab Rahman yesterday, who granted the request for remand.

Sources said the general manager began his corrupt activities upon his secondment from one GLC to another based in Putrajaya in 2005 when he hooked up with the two men to work out “lucrative deals”.

Apart from helping the contractors to get projects, it is learnt that he also helped them to obtain payments from his company, and was “rewarded” in return.

“We have gone to the general manager’s house and seized assets and cash. Officers also raided his office here in Putrajaya and took documents,” said a source.

So far, 11 witnesses have had their statements recorded by the MACC.

MACC officers also went to the homes of the two contractors in Ampang and Semenyih but did not make any seizure.

“We will be checking their offices next for more evidence,” said a source.

On Thursday, MACC officers seized RM30,000, two cars – an Audi TT and a Toyota Hilux – and a Harley Davidson bike from the general manager’s house.

Several bank accounts belonging to him, his wife and three children, containing RM2.5mil were frozen.

He was also said to have amassed at least nine upmarket properties worth RM8mil.

One has been sold off while some units are being rented out.

When contacted, MACC deputy chief commissioner (operations) Datuk Azam Baki said that apart from the two contractors, several people in other companies which had dealings with the man would also be called in for questioning.

Azam said MACC would probe the amount amassed by the general manager from his corrupt activities and book others who were in cahoots with him.

“Those who are of the assumption that they can get away with corruption, are sorely wrong. It’s just a matter of time that we will get them,” he said.
