PUTRAJAYA – The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission has obtained a two-day extension to Sunday of the remand of three men, including an Indian national, in connection with the issuance of fake certificates of several private institutions of higher learning.
Magistrate Khir Nizam Jemari allowed the extension following an application by the MACC. The three men had been under remand for five days since Monday.
The men, in their 30s, were arrested in a raid in Jalan Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur, last Sunday.
An MACC source said the trio had allegedly issued diploma and degree certificates to people without their having to attend any courses, coming up with the documents within a week for payments ranging from RM2,000 to RM16,000.
The MACC reported yesterday it had arrested another man, aged 34, and he was being held on remand for six days. – BERNAMA
