Klang school principal arrested for alleged graft


KLANG: The principal of a school here has been nabbed for alleged graft.

The 50-year-old individual was detained by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) for allegedly misusing his position for self-gratification.

He was arrested at the Klang MACC office on Thursday (May 20) where he had been summoned.

He had allegedly used his position to induce the management committee of his school’s staff and teacher’s welfare unit to withdraw RM70,000 from its zakat contribution from a bank to purportedly help needy children.

However, the principal had allegedly pocketed the funds instead.

He will be brought to the Shah Alam Magistrate’s Court Friday morning (May 21) for the MACC to obtain a remand order.

The case was confirmed by Selangor MACC director Datuk Alias Salim.

The principal will be investigated under Section 23(1) of the MACC Act 2009.
