Man who allegedly tried to bribe Johor Sultan surrenders

Mar 31, 2017

A man who is linked to an attempt to bribe the Sultan of Johor, Sultan Ibrahim Almarhum Sultan Iskandar for a title award surrendered to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters in Putrajaya yesterday.

MACC deputy chief commissioner Azam Baki said the 54-year-old suspect gave himself up a few hours after the MACC issued a warning.

“Investigations are still in progress,” he said when contacted.

At an MACC Excellent Service Award yesterday morning, Azam said the suspect was given up to midnight to surrender.

Media representatives who gathered at the MACC headquarters however, did not spot the man.

However, they saw two lawyers, believed to be representing the man, enter the MACC building at 5pm.

It was learnt the man had turned up alone to surrender to the authorities.

On March 25, the Sultan of Johor revealed he had received a RM2 million offer from an individual to propose his name to the Chief Secretary to the Government to obtain the honorific title, ‘Tan Sri’ from the Yang di-Pertuan Agong. –Bernama
