MACC detains three high-level govt officials
The three have been detained for allegedly accepting bribes, misuse of power and being involved in money laundering.
“We also froze their bank accounts purportedly containing more than RM13mil and stocks worth between RM1mil and RM6mil,” said MACC Investigations director Datuk Azam Baki.
Azam added that RM400,000 in cash was also seized along with some foreign currency and luxury watches.
“We also seized a few luxury cars, including a Maserati, a BMW and an Audi. We believe the vehicles were purchased based on the bribes received,” he said
Azam said the suspects were senior officers in a government department, local authority and a government-linked company.
He said the three were arrested in a three-state simultaneous swoop that took place in Kuala Lumpur, Malacca and Kelantan between noon and 2pm on Monday.
