PUTRAJAYA: Five politicians, including a Barisan Nasional Member of Parliament, a special aide to a Selangor state executive councillor from the DAP and a former special assistant to the mentri besar, have been arrested for corruption.

The remaining two arrested by the Malaysia Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) are the MP’s special assistant and a company director.

All are alleged to have committed graft or attempted to cheat the Government of thousands of ringgit in false claims.

All five are expected to be produced before the Shah Alam Sessions Court on Tuesday where they will be charged with corrupt practices and attempting to cheat.

The MP, who was formerly a state assemblyman, is alleged to made false claims by submitting invoices purportedly for the purchase of materials for a programme that never took place.

His special assistant, who was said to have abetted him and who submitted similar claims, is also expected to be charged with the same offence.

It is learnt that the former assistant to the mentri besar, a member of PKR, is also expected to be charged under the Penal Code with attempted cheating.

He is suspected to have tried to cheat the president of a government-linked company of RM50,000.

The money was purportedly meant for a state government function.

Also expected to be in the dock Tuesday is a company director who allegedly submitted false claims to the Hulu Langat district office for the purchase and supply of goods for several programmes that took place in the Teratai constituency, when no such programmes took place last year.
