Tan Sri remanded five days over attempt to bribe Johor Sultan

KUALA LUMPUR - A man with a “Tan Sri” title linked to an attempt to bribe the Sultan of Johor, Sultan Ibrahim Iskandar, has been remanded for five days starting today.

In a report by The Star Online, the Klang-based businessman was remanded under Section 16 of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Act to investigate the Malay ruler’s claim that the man had tried to buy a title award from him.

The report said the man had arrived at the Putrajaya Magistrate Court this morning at 9.30 am, before he was brought before Magistrate Nik Isfahanie Tasnim Wan Ab Rahman.

The suspect was represented by lawyers Datuk K. Kumaraendran, JR Tey, and Datuk Joshua Kevin.

This morning, Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) deputy chief commissioner Datuk Azam Baki had said the 54-year-old suspect gave himself up a few hours after the MACC issued a warning.

On March 25, the Sultan of Johor revealed he had received a RM2 million offer from an individual to propose his name to the Chief Secretary to the Government to obtain the honorific title, ‘Tan Sri’ from the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.
