Six suspects held by MACC over housing matter

KUALA LUMPUR (Feb 27): Six men including the son and special officer of a Johor civil servant were detained on suspicion of corruption and misappropriation involving changing the status of bumiputera houses to non-bumiputera.

A source told Bernama yesterday that the corrupt activity was believed to have been going on since 2013, involving several developers in Johor, which had denied qualified bumiputera buyers from buying bumiputera housing units.

The modus operandi of the developers involved was by hiding the 30% quota set aside for bumiputera buyers from the list by registering the names of their workers who had bumiputera status.
