ALOR STAR – The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) today detained two men to facilitate investigations into false claims totalling RM20.3 million in connection with incentive payments for livestock projects in 2015.

According to a source, the first suspect, a 51-year-old company director, was detained at the Kedah MACC office at about 1pm when he turned up to give his statement.

The other suspect, who is the owner of a separate company, was nabbed at the Simpang Ringgam rest-and-service area in Johor at 3pm.

“The arrests were made following information that several companies were believed to have submitted false claims related to incentive payments for the Dairy Cattle Farming Project under the Entry Point Project 13-Dairy Cluster programme of the Economic Transformation Plan worth RM20.3 million, to the Veterinary Services Department in 2015,” according to the source.
