ALOR SETAR, Oct 7 — The managing director of a company in Selangor has been remanded for four days for allegedly making false claims under the Covid-19 wage subsidy scheme.
Alor Setar Sessions Court assistant registrar Wan Nor Fadzilah Wan Ibrahim issued the remand order against the 33-year-old suspect today.
