Engineer, wife remanded for six days in graft probe

 

PUTRAJAYA,.  An engineer of an oil company and his wife have been remanded for allegedly soliciting and accepting bribes in relation to a project in Sipitang, Sabah.

The couple will be held for six days until March 11 after magistrate Khir Nizam Jemari allowed the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s (MACC) remand application.

The two were alleged to have accepted bribes of RM361,000 involving the

Sabah Ammonia Urea project three years ago.

Sources said the suspect, who is the project’s quality analysis and quality control manager, is believed to have solicited and received bribes from the main contractor as payment for him to appoint a sub-contracting company to carry out pipe testing work.
