MACC deputy chief commissioner (operations) Datuk Azam Baki said a mind-boggling array of wealth were seized in a case which involves a director and deputy director of a utilities department, aged 51 and 54, together with the latter’s brother ― a 55-year-old business man holding the title of “Datuk”.

The agency seized boxes full of cash, bags full of gold and precious stone jewellery, luxury brand watches and handbags, folders filled with land and property titles that were displayed to the media at a press conference here today.

Yesterday, it was reported that the the two officials were detained at their office in Kota Kinabalu by a team of MACC officers at about 9.15am.

The team seized cash worth RM3 million which was found stuffed inside a safe deposit box in the office of one of the suspects.

  1. I will not be surprised if the MACC forced the culprits to confess that the money was meant for ex Umno Baru ‘s minister Shafie Apdal who is now leading the Opposition front in Sabah to dislodge Umno Baru.
