A chairman of a construction company is in remand for three days from today for alleged corruption to secure a project worth RM110 million from a ministry in 2012.

Magistrate Shah Wira Abdul Halim issued the remand order against the 67-year-old man following an application by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

MACC Deputy Chief Commissioner of Operations Datuk Seri Ahmad Khusairi Yahaya, when contacted, confirmed the arrest and said the case was being investigated under Section 16 of the MACC Act 2009.

He did not rule out the possibility of more individuals to be arrested to assist in the investigation.

Sources closed to the investigation said the man had allegedly paid to secure the development project.
