PUTRAJAYA: A couple has been remanded to help in a bribery probe into claims that they received money totalling more than RM600,000 for the appointment of a transportation company for a government-linked company.
The husband and wife, who are in their 50s and 40s respectively, were arrested at their home in Petaling Jaya at about 7pm on Saturday (June 4).
The couple were brought before Magistrate Shah Wira Abdul Halim on Sunday (June 5) who allowed for the suspects to be remanded for six days until June 10.
It is learnt that the man, a senior executive in a GLC, had demanded for “monthly payment” of about RM20,000.
“The money is his ‘reward’ for appointing the transport company to deliver petroleum-based products across the country between July 2019 and April this year,” said a source.
The same source said that the woman is believed to have been in cohorts with her husband to ask and accept money on his behalf.
It is learnt that the senior executive had been suspended from his duties at the company.
Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) senior director of investigation Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Hashim confirmed the couple’s arrest.
