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.”
