A son of a high-ranking government department head in Penang is in remand for six days from today for allegedly conspiring with his father to obtain a tender worth RM45,472 for his company.
The remand order against the 27-year-old man, who is also an executive of a government agency in Perak, was issued by George Town Sessions/Magistrate’s Court Assistant Registrar Muna Maria Azmi following an application by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).
The man was arrested at his office in Perak at 10.30 am yesterday.
Yesterday, his father, aged 58, was ordered to be remanded for six days for allegedly abusing his position in recommending his son’s company to be awarded the tender for a nursery class system project.
He was said to have proposed the name of the company to the quotation evaluation committee for the project.
If found guilty, both accused face a jail sentence of up to 20 years or a fine of five times the value of the money solicited, respectively.
