MACC widens probe into food contracts

18th January, 2019

KOTA KINABALU: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has detained another suspect in Sandakan as it widens its investigation into suspicious food supply contracts worth nearly RM20 million with the Sabah Education Department.

The 28-year-old contractor, the 26th arrested so far since Monday, has been remanded for seven days by the Sandakan Magistrates Court on Thursday (Jan 17).

The modus operandi was to use fake documents to supply millions of ringgit worth of contracts from services to food supplies worth between RM617,500 and RM5,340,000.

MACC investigators have remained tight-lipped over the investigation, but it is believed that fake documents, including falsified bank statements, were used to secure contracts.

According to sources, the contracts worth nearly RM20 million involved with supplying food to school hostels, among others.

It was learnt that the latest suspect is being investigated over a RM2.26 million Sabah Education Department contract in 2016.

However, the sources said that they were going through documents to establish if they were paid off by others to use their trading licenses.

They are also looking at the possibility that certain department officials were involved.

To date, a total of 13 contractors including women have been detained in Kota Kinabalu, five in Tawau, four in Keningau as well as two each in Sandakan and Lahad Datu.
