PUTRAJAYA – A businessman with Datuk Seri title has been remanded for six days following an allegation of him receiving RM19 million to close the investigation by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) on the undersea tunnel project in Penang.

The remand order on the 37-year old suspect was issued by Magistrate Norhidayati Mohammad Nasroh.

The suspect was arrested by MACC yesterday for the suspicion on him having received RM19 million from a company involved in the RM6.3 billion undersea tunnel project after he allegedly claimed that he was able to ‘settle the case’ by MACC.

According to a source, the company had paid a total of RM19 million in stages between July and August last year. –MalaysiaGazette
