Sabah Port officials detained for corruption investigations

A director of Malaysia’s Sabah Ports and Harbours and three directors from the port’s contractors have been remanded by authorities to assist in alleged corruption investigations related to shipping arrangements between 2016 and 2018.

The four officials are allegedly involved in offering bribes to a civil servant in a ship maintenance contract and will be detained by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) for two to four days.

MACC also conducted a search at the houses of the four suspects during the arrest. The amount of money involved in the alleged misconduct is still under MACC investigation.
