A deputy director of a government agency and another individual have been remanded in a corruption investigation into an RM270,000 project.

Magistrate Low When Zhen allowed an application by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to remand the two suspects for four days until Jan 13.

The two were remanded allegedly for demanding bribes to approve a Universal Service Provision project.

The USP is a government initiative to expand communications and multimedia networks, particularly in areas and for communities that lack such services. – The Star
