A senior FGV officer remanded for 5 days


A Senior officer with FGV Holdings Bhd, detained by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) on Saturday for allegedly accepting gratification worth RM10,000, was remanded for five days from yesterday.

According to an MACC source, the 50-year-old suspect has been remanded until Thursday.

“Magistrate Maizatul Munirah Abd Rahman allowed the suspect to be remanded for five days to facilitate investigations into the case,” the source said when contacted by Bernama yesterday.

The senior officer was arrested at a restaurant in Taman Prima Saujana, Kajang, at about 11.30am on Saturday.

The suspect is believed to have received the payment as an inducement to recommend the contract extension of a firm auditing international certification of palm oil refineries under FGV. — Bernama
