KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has remanded two more people to assist a probe into corruption involving the upgrading and infrastructure maintenance works of a Selangor religious school.

The two men, aged 42 and 58, will be remanded until Monday.

The remand order against the duo was issued by Magistrate Nur Faizah Abdul Sani at the Shah Alam court today.

Sources revealed that the suspects were detained by Selangor MACC after having their statement recorded around 7.30pm yesterday.

The sources added that the two men, who were a senior supervisor and supervisor of a religious department, had allegedly received RM40,000 bribe as a reward for recommending and procuring the religious school's upgrading and infrastructure maintenance works in 2020.

Meanwhile, Selangor MACC director Datuk Alias Salim confirmed the arrests, adding that the case is being investigated under Section 17(a) of the MACC Act 2009.

On Tuesday two education services officers, aged 46 and 50, were remanded to assist the MACC's investigation into the same case.

The remand order on the 50-year-old suspect has been extended to March 20 while the 46-year-old woman was released on MACC bail.
