The Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) has started a probe into the alleged high costs of maintaining the 16 Proton Perdana V6 Executive cars used by Terengganu executive councillors.
ACA officers yesterday visited the State Secretariat and State Treasury at Wisma Darul Iman here to question senior officials over the issue.
It was learnt that three ACA officers interviewed several senior state finance officials between 4.20pm and 6pm.
Three other ACA officers questioned four drivers from 10am to 1.15pm at the State Secretariat on the 15th floor of the building.
The officers removed several documents, including servicing bills of the Proton Perdanas.
State Secretary Datuk Mokthar Nong confirmed that the ACA had interviewed several state government officials.
“We will render all assistance to the ACA to facilitate its probe and I am willing to surrender all documents to them,” he said.
It was reported that the Terengganu state executive councillors would go ahead and use the newly-purchased Mercedes E200 Kompressors bought to replace the Proton Perdanas. click here to continue...
