KUALA TERENGGANU, Nov 16 — The Terengganu chapter of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has arrested a committee chairman of the temporary relief centre (PPS) on suspicion of certifying a flood relief form containing false details in 2022.

According to a MACC source, the man, in his 60s, was arrested at about 11 am yesterday at the Kemaman MACC office when he came to give his statement.

Sources said that the form was allegedly submitted with false details to claim the compassionate cash aid (BWI) offered by the government to flood-affected heads of households.

Terengganu MACC Hazrul Shazreen Abd Yazid when contacted confirmed the arrest, saying that investigations are being conducted under Section 18 of the MACC Act 2009.

However, the suspect was released on MACC bail after his statement was recorded, he added.
