The MACC has detained a CEO of a GLC to facilitate investigations into alleged corruption in the awarding of a development project in Putrajaya via tender worth RM300 million.

The 59-year-old man with a 'datuk' title was arrested at his office at noon, today.

It is learnt that the graft-buster had raided three premises in the Klang Valley to obtain documents related to the case.

According to a source, the man had allegedly abused his power to manipulate the project which was under development.

"The project was awarded to a contractor through a tender process, but due to several issues which were intentionally raised, the contractor failed to execute the project.

"It was later given to another contractor which is believed to have links to the man, and this whole show has been planned from the get-go,' said the source.

Meanwhile, MACC deputy chief commissioner (operations) Azam Baki confirmed the arrest, but provided no further details.
