KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 14): The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) will be charging a former political secretary of a minister over a bribery case involving RM5 million that is linked to the tender of a ministry project.
“The suspect is believed to have assisted a contractor in securing a project from the ministry and received gratification from several individuals through several transactions,” a source said.
The man, around 40 years of age, will be facing several charges under Section 16 of the MACC Act 2009 at the Kuala Lumpur Court tomorrow. He is also expected to face other charges at the Shah Alam Court on Oct 23 for the same offence.
MACC director of investigation Datuk Norazlan Mohd Razali confirmed the matter when contacted.
He also confirmed that three other senior officers of an agency under the ministry, who were previously under investigation, will also be charged soon for accepting bribes.
