KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has arrested the top management of Perak Malay Chamber of Commerce in connection with a court case.

According to MACC source, the 47-year-old man was nabbed after he surrendered himself at the commission’s headquarters in Putrajaya at 4 pm today.

“Right now, he is being investigated in relation to  the prosecution of a corruption case in court.

"The case involves land development projects and the supply of building materials in Perak in 2014,” the source said, adding that the MACC, however, had yet to seize any documents or properties involving the suspect.
