MACC warning to owners of scrapped cars
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.
