KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 8 — A former managing director and chief executive officer of National Entrepreneurial Group Economic Fund (TEKUN Nasional) with the title of ‘Datuk’ was detained by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) today on suspicion of committing corruption.

According to a source in MACC, the 62-year-old suspect was detained at his residence in Bukit Bandaraya, Shah Alam at 5.15pm.

“The suspect was believed to have accepted a bribe to speed up payment to a debt collection company amounting to RM360,000 on January 15, 2015.

“The suspect took 10 per cent or RM36,000 of TEKUN Nasional’s bad debt for November, 2014 as a bribe for expediting payment,” he told Bernama today.

At the same time, the suspect, when holding the posts, had appointed a debt collection company to collect debts from 2008 to 2014 from borrowers who had defaulted on payments for more than two years.

Back on January 15, 2015, the suspect was detained at the Shah Alam Club, Selangor when receiving the bribe from the owner of the debt collection company.

MACC have now concluded their probe and are expected to charge him at the Shah Alam Sessions Court tomorrow for soliciting the RM36,000 bribe.

Meanwhile, MACC Deputy Chief Commissioner (Operations) Datuk Azam Baki, when contacted by Bernama, confirmed the arrest and said that the suspect would be taken to the Shah Alam Sessions Court to be charged tomorrow.

This is the second MACC detention this week of a high profile individual following the arrest of Rural and Regional Development Ministry secretary-general Datuk Mohd Arif Ab Rahman for abuse of power and corruption.

It is also understood at the MACC is investigating whether Mohd Arif, who used to be a TEKUN Nasional director, and this individual were in cahoots. — Bernama-

Former CEO of Tekun claims trial to graft charges
THE STAR







KUALA LUMPUR: A former top executive of Tekun Nasional has claimed trial in the Sessions Court here to two counts of obtaining RM200,000 to approve two loan applications by a company owned by his son-in-law and niece.

Datuk Abdul Rahim Hassan (pic) was charged with using his position as managing director and chief executive officer of the government agency under the Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Ministry, to get RM100,000 by approving the loan application for a pioneer project of Syarikat Dynamind Enterprise, which belonged to his son-in-law Khairul Fadly Mahammad.

Abdul Rahim, 59, faces a second charge of getting RM100,000 by approving another loan application for his niece Khairiyah Khalid, who was the company’s business partner, for the project.

He allegedly committed the offences at Tekun Nasional office in Bandar Tasik Selatan here on March 31 last year under Section 23 of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Act 2009.
MACC deputy public prosecutor Siti Shakimah Ibrahim proposed bail at RM50,000 in one surety for each charge and also applied for the two charges to be jointly heard.

In asking for a lower bail, Abdul Rahim’s counsel Hasnal Rezua Merican said his client was a retiree and his wife was a housewife, adding that the charges involved the same transaction and allegedly took place on the same day.

Sessions Court judge Allaudeen Ismail set bail at RM50,000 in one surety for both charges and ordered Abdul Rahim’s passport to be surrendered to the court.

The court then fixed Dec 16 for mention.
