JOHOR BARU: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) today arrested a human resource manager in Johor on suspicion of submitting false claims of more than RM200,000 to the Social Security Organisation (Perkeso).

According to sources, the 35-year-old woman was arrested after she gave her statement at the MACC office here at 10am.

"It is learnt that the individual, who works for a private company, has submitted false Perkeso claims online using the Worker Verification Form to apply for allocations under the Pelan Jana Semula Ekonomi Negara (Penjana).

"It was meant to implement the Worker Recruitment Incentive Programme but the programme was not fully implemented," according to a source.

Johor MACC director, Datuk Azmi Alias, confirmed the arrest when contacted, saying the case is being investigated under Section 18 of the MACC Act 2009.

He added that the woman has been released on MACC bail. – Bernama
