KUALA LUMPUR – The three individuals arrested to assist into investigation on granting fake Development Order (DO) involving the loss of RM1 million were released on police bail.
The Director of Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Investigation Department, Commissioner Datuk Seri Zakaria Ahmad said, the trio was released after recording their statements.
However, he did not share the details on the identity of the trio which include a Datuk and his wife.
Earlier, the media was informed that three individuals have been arrested over the investigation, including the former Political Secretary of the former Minister of Federal Territories, Khalid Samad.
“(They) have been freed on police bail.
“There is no new arrest at the moment,” he told MalaysiaGazette through a WhatsApp message just now.
He also did not elaborate when asked if the investigation would be referred to the Attorney-General’s Chamber.
“The case is still under investigation,” said Zakaria.
On 17 May, the Member of Parliament of Shah Alam, Khalid Abdul Samad verified the arrest of his former Political Secretary, Azli Yusuf in a tweet.
“My former Political Secretary, Hj Azli was remanded by the police yesterday following a complaint from an architect company which was given a fake DO by a broker.
“That broker received rewards by selling the name of Hj Azli who allegedly helped him obtain the DO,” said Khalid.
Nevertheless, Khalid also said that the broker was also being investigated by the police.
Earlier, media reported that an architect dealt with the man believed to be Datuk (66) along with his wife (43) to get an approval on development plan in early June last year. –MalaysiaGazette
