PETRONAS employee arrested over suspected graft

PETRONAS has confirmed that the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has arrested an employee for suspected graft.

The arrest follows an internal investigation on the employee conducted by PETRONAS, which later reported the case to MACC. The release stated: “PETRONAS also assisted MACC investigators on the case prior to the arrest.”

Additionally, PETRONAS does not condone nor tolerate any form of misconduct among its employees and contractors and is extending its fullest cooperation to MACC to further assist in their investigation if necessary.

In fact, PETRONAS has since 2012 been working closely with MACC to curb and prevent corruption and misconduct not just among employees within its group of companies but also among contractors and third-party service providers.
