Between Saturday and Monday, two senior SWD officials; a businessman and his accountant; and a former senior state official were freed on bail after spending between four and two weeks in remand.
On Oct 5, the arrest of the SWD director and his deputy by the MACC saw the biggest haul of a whopping RM52.2 million in cash ever made in the country’s history of graft-busting.
The value of the seizure in that case rose to almost RM150 million when the MACC uncovered more cash, jewellery, land titles, luxury cars and merchandise from the suspects and their families.
Both men were suspended from their positions pending investigations soon after they were released on bail.
Meanwhile, senior government officer Willis Mojiron Ansoi, 58, has been named as the new SWD director.
The civil engineering graduate from Universiti Malaya previously served as Sabah Public Works Department deputy director.
