MACC arrested the enforcement director at its headquarters at 10am today.

PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has arrested the Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) enforcement director, making him the ninth council officer to be arrested.

Speaking to FMT, a source said the 59-year-old director would be assisting the MACC probe a suspected syndicate protecting illegal businesses and gambling dens.

He was arrested at the MACC headquarters at 10am and will be brought to the Putrajaya magistrates’ court tomorrow morning for a remand order application.

When contacted, MACC deputy chief commissioner (operations) Ahmad Khusairi Yahaya confirmed the arrest but declined to comment further.
