PUCHONG: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has arrested a Melaka state assemblyman and a clerk today in an investigation over misappropriation of funds linked to the National Blue Ocean Strategy (NBOS).

In a statement, MACC chief commissioner Latheefa Koya said Hassan Abd Rahman, who chairs the State Assembly Development and Coordination Committee (Japerun), was arrested together with the committee’s clerk, Khuzaiman Abdullah.

“Both of them have been released on bail and will be charged at the Ayer Keroh Sessions Court in Melaka tomorrow.

“The case is related to the misappropriation of allocations for the Strategic Linkage Initiative given to Japerun, under the Melaka NBOS in 2016,” she said.

Hassan used to serve as Melaka’s state executive councillor during the previous Barisan Nasional reign in the state.
