KUALA LUMPUR — May 3, 2017: Two individuals are expected to be charged tomorrow for submitting false claims amounting to RM8.8 million in respect of pipe maintenance projects awarded by Petronas.

Both the suspects, a director and project manager of a private company, are believed to have made the false claims in 2011.

According to a source, they submitted an invoice for nearly RM14 million when the overall project was in fact implemented for only RM5 million.

“The MACC is also expected to investigate whether the two had been getting projects from other government-linked companies,” he said.

MACC Deputy Commissioner (Operations) Datuk Azam Baki confirmed that the suspects will be brought to court tomorrow. — Bernama
