PUTRAJAYA – Human Resources Minister Datuk Seri Richard Riot arrived at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission here Friday to give his statement in the probe into misappropriation of funds of the Skills Development Fund Corp (SDFC).
He arrived at the headquarters at about 10am accompanied by his bodyguard.
On Thursday, Riot’s 61-year-old political secretary was remanded for six days to assist the MACC in the investigations.
Five people have been detained over the case. The others are the corporation’s chief executive, secretary, assistant financial officer, and a company director.
