IPOH, Nov 28 ― The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has arrested the chief executive officer of a Perak government-owned subsidiary for allegedly submitting false documents to the Perak state secretary for approval.

Magistrate Umzarul An Nur Umar today issued a two-day remand order against the 45-year-old man for investigation under Section 18 of the MACC Act 2009.

Sources said the CEO was arrested at the Perak MACC office at about 3.45pm yesterday.

The documents were in relation to the offer letter for appointment as the CEO on a permanent post with a monthly salary of RM20,000 when the minutes of a state government meeting dated December 8, 2017 had stated that it was a contract post.
