MACC officer, ‘Datuk Roy’ claim trial on graft charges

A MALAYSIAN Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) officer and a businessman were charged in the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court today with two counts of soliciting and receiving bribes totalling RM640,000 as inducement to ensure ex-prime minister Muhyiddin Yassin’s son was not remanded by the graft-busting body.

Mohd Rasyidi Mohd Said, 43, and Mohd Hussein Mohd Nasir, 54, better known as “Datuk Roy”, pleaded not guilty to the charges before judge Azura Alwi.
