PUTRAJAYA: Four people, believed to have been working hand and glove in making false claims for a development project in the east coast worth more than RM300mil, have been arrested.

One of them is a manager with a government-linked property company. The others are a managing director, a project manager and an architect of a contracting and architect firm.

It is learnt that three of the suspects were arrested at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission office in Terengganu.

The fourth suspect was arrested at his home in Kuala Lumpur.

The suspects, aged between 28 and 48, were arrested yesterday.

They are now under a six-day remand order after magistrate Noor Mazrinie Mahmood allowed the MACC’s application, which was submitted yesterday.

MACC senior director of investigations Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Hashim confirmed the arrests.
