KOTA BARU (Bernama): The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) arrested the director of a Federal Government agency over alleged fraud here on Monday (Jan 20). It is understood that the arrest of the 45-year-old director was made based on complaints over his involvement in submitting false claims for the department's programmes and courses. It is suspected false details were furnished for supply of drinks and course equipment as well as programmes, which were not delivered in full. In addition, the department's vehicle maintenance claims were also suspected to contain false details as it is believed that no maintenance was carried out. Kelantan MACC director Ramli Ismail, when contacted confirmed the arrest but declined to comment further, saying the suspect is on remand for four days beginning Tuesday (Jan 21) for investigations.
