Tan Sri, son among four released on bail over RM13mil fraudulent claims

PUTRAJAYA: Four people, who were involved in the case of allegedly making fraudulent claims of close to RM13mil, have been released on bail.

Magistrate Nik Isfahanie Tasnim Wan Ab Rahman allowed the release of the individuals – a Tan Sri, his son and two officers from the Drainage and Irrigation Department – here on Thursday.

Two others, who were remanded together with the four, were released on Monday.

The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) prosecutors had requested for the four to be held further.

The six were initially remanded for six days beginning April 6.

A sting operation by the MACC saw all six rounded up at different locations in Johor, Seremban and Putrajaya.

It is alleged that the Tan Sri submitted claims related to the supply of some 350 geotubes to carry out river restoration works at Sungai Melaka for the department.

However, the actual number of units supplied is said to be just 89 units, costing only RM4mil.-thestar
