A police report was lodged against the top gun of an aircraft maintenance company which holds major contracts with the Royal Malaysian Air Force for alleged corruption today.

The report against Airod president Ahmad Johan ( photo ) was lodged by PRM vice-president R Sivarasa with the Bukit Aman federal police headquarters in Kuala Lumpur.

Speaking to reporters, PRM president Dr Syed Husin Ali said they possess evidence of "highly questionable payments" of up to RM5.7 million from Airod to Quality Ranch - a company set up by Ahmad and his son Edron Hayata.
