PUTRAJAYA — Jan. 10, 2018: A court here today issued a six-day remand order on a senior executive director of Consortium Zenith Construction for investigation into alleged corruption relating to the proposed Penang undersea tunnel.

Magistrate Fatina Amyra Abdul Jalil issued the order against the 59-year-old director with the honorific datuk following an application by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

The man was detained yesterday evening when he went to the commission’s office here to give his statement.

He was detained following raids by MACC at several state government offices and companies in Penang yesterday.

The raids were at the Public Works Department, State Scerertary’s office, Land and Mines and Valuation and Property Services Department as well as Ewein-Zenith, 555 Capital Diamond Valley Industrial Park and Consortium Zenith Construction.

They were carried out following a complaint by Parti Cinta Malaysia vice-president Datuk Huan Cheng Guan.

On January 5, Huan lodged a report with the MACC and submitted what he claimed was fresh evidence on the  project. — Bernama
