MACC warn­ing to own­ers of scrapped cars

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Cor­rup­tion Com­mis­sion (MACC) has warned 46 own­ers of scrapped lux­ury cars to sur­ren­der their ve­hi­cles to author­i­ties within a week.

MACC sur­veil­lance direc­tor Datuk Seri Ah­mad Khu­sairi Ya­haya said fail­ure to do so would re­sult in ac­tion un­der Sec­tion 69 of the Malaysian Anti-Cor­rup­tion Com­mis­sion Act 2009, which car­ries a RM10,000 fine or two years im­pris­on­ment, or both.

The own­ers of the scrapped cars were de­tected after the ar­rest of four sus­pects al­legedly linked to a syn­di­cate.

“The syn­di­cate’s modus operandi is to use fake govern­ment doc­u­ments to reg­is­ter the lux­ury cars,” he said in a state­ment yes­ter­day.

Ah­mad Khu­sairi added that MACC had al­ready seized 17 cars worth RM1.7 mil­lion.

“We will use our oper­a­tion, code-named Ops Piang, which is a joint oper­a­tion be­tween Kedah and Pu­tra­jaya MACC, to ar­rest these crooks,” he added.
