Tan Sri facing charges in connection to govt vehicle fleet contract tomorrow

KUALA LUMPUR, April 2 — A businessman with a Tan Sri title will be charged at the Sessions Court tomorrow over a contract for the supply and management of the government’s vehicle fleet.

According to a check of the court system, the corporate figure’s case will be heard before Judge Suzana Hussin at 9am.

A source contacted by Bernama said the individual will face charges under Section 420 of the Penal Code.

Previously, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) was reported to have frozen several private bank accounts worth tens of millions of ringgit belonging to a business tycoon with the title of Tan Sri.

According to sources, the freezing came after an investigation into a businessman linked to a contract awarded to a government vehicle supply company.

The company was previously awarded a 15-year contract worth RM4.5 billion to supply and manage the government’s vehicle fleet until 2037.

Based on MACC’s invitation letter circulated today, the agency has also obtained permission to charge a corporate figure in Criminal Sessions Court 14 tomorrow.
