KUALA TERENGGANU – The remand of a director and an accountant of a Terengganu entity has been extended by three days over the investigation into an ‘umrah’ package fraud.
Kuala Terengganu Sessions Court assistant registrar Wan Aziantie Wan Ab Karim alias Isa issued the order for the extension of the remand from today.
The two suspects, both aged 28, were arrested after 47 people and a tour company lodged police reports claiming fraud in the umrah packages offered by the entity.
Police said yesterday that 4,800 people, many of them teachers, were cheated under the umrah package offer that involved RM14.2 million. – BERNAMA
