TAN SRI IN CONNECTION WITH BUYING OF JOHOR TITLES GIVES UP
PUTRAJAYA: The man who allegedly offered the sultan of Johor money to recommend “Tan Sri” titles to certain people has surrendered to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission.
It was learnt that the 54-yearold man, himself a Tan Sri, went to the commission’s headquarters here around lunchtime.
This was several hours after MACC Deputy Chief Commissioner Datuk Azam Baki issued an ultimatum.
Azam had given the man until midnight to turn himself in.
The Tan Sri went alone to the MACC headquarters, while his lawyer arrived later.
“The man has surrendered himself and investigations are ongoing.
“The move whether to remand him will be decided tomorrow (today),” said Azam.
Earlier yesterday, at MACC’s Excellence Award ceremony, Azam said Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar had not given an official statement, but information to MACC.
“(From the information given) we need to get this guy first and see what this is all about.”
