The order against the three suspects, including a woman, was issued by Magistrate Izza Zulaika Ruhanuddin following an application by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

According to MACC, they were alleged to have abused their position and received gratification from a supplier for purchase of a factory equipment.

Besides the 44-year-old company director with the “Datuk” title,  the others are a 51-year-old company director and 29-year-old woman insurance agent.
