Sand mining: Remand on two individuals extended

Published on  |  Modified on

The remand on two men, including a company director to facilitate investigations into illegal mining of sand and gravel in Selangor was today extended for three days until Friday.

Magistrate Norhidayati Mohammad Nasroh who granted the extension on the application of MACC at the Putrajaya Magistrate's Court, also released two other individuals, a company director and a project manager investigated for the same case, on RM10,000 and RM15,000 deposited bail, respectively.

They were remanded seven days from Nov 30 after being detained at 12.30pm on Nov 29 in Kuala Lumpur.

Following the arrest, the MACC froze several accounts of the suspected companies containing RM4 million. 

Initial investigations by MACC found that the mining companies had offered bribes to local authority officers, allegedly as an inducement not to take action against them.
