According to The Star report on January 9, Ancom Berhad confirmed that its executive chairman Datuk Dr Siew Ka Wei has been remanded by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) over allegations of power abuse during his tenure as Tourism Board chairman.

In a January 9 statement, the company’s board of directors said that MACC has been granted a four-day remand order to assist in investigations involving a RM100 million tourism contract that was awarded before Malaysia’s 14th general election.

“The Board has convened an emergency board meeting this afternoon to assess the implications of the above on the Group’s operations, its shareholders and other stakeholders who may be affected directly and indirectly, and to determine the possible course of action to be taken,” it said.
