Mohamad Sabu’s political aide, arrested yesterday by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), is the same person the agency previously investigated on suspicion of receiving bribe money to settle his debts.

This time, he is being investigated over allegations that he received millions in kickbacks from a Defence project worth RM56 million. Yesterday, the Putrajaya Magistrate’s Court issued a six-day remand order to detain him.

In August 2018, the MACC investigated the aide on charges of receiving more than RM800,000 from several quarters to settle his bankruptcy. It is learnt that the aide was declared a bankrupt by the Insolvency Department sometime around the year 2014,

According to a well-placed source, his status remained as such until soon after the 14th general election when several payments were said to have been credited to the department’s account as settlement for his debts.


PETALING JAYA: Mohamad Sabu’s political aide, arrested yesterday by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), is the same person the agency previously investigated on suspicion of receiving bribe money to settle his debts.

This time, he is being investigated over allegations that he received millions in kickbacks from a Defence project worth RM56 million. Yesterday, the Putrajaya Magistrate’s Court issued a six-day remand order to detain him.




Preliminary investigations revealed that the aide had received the millions from a company as an inducement for his assistance in securing the project through direct negotiation from the Ministry of Defence in August 2019.

While details of the project are not known, various news reports suggest that it entails the provision of maintenance services for the country’s security system.

The MACC is said to have seized cash worth more than RM70,000 and some documents in relation to the project. The case is being investigated under Section 17(a) of the MACC Act.

In August 2018, the MACC investigated the aide on charges of receiving more than RM800,000 from several quarters to settle his bankruptcy.

It is learnt that the aide was declared a bankrupt by the Insolvency Department sometime around the year 2014,

According to a well-placed source, his status remained as such until soon after the 14th general election when several payments were credited to the department’s account as settlement for his debts.

The case was reportedly ‘settled’ soon after.
