The Sabah government today denied that the Sabah Water Department director arrested for graft is back at work.

A Chief Minister's Office spokesperson said the director was suspended from duty and the notice was issued last week, Utusan Malaysia reported.

"What was reported is inaccurate," he reportedly said.

According to Sabah state secretary Sukarti Wakiman, the department's director and deputy director were suspended effective from the dates of their arrests, Oct 5 and 4 respectively, Bernama reported.
