Perlis Menteri Besar Mohd Shukri Ramli’s son arrived at the Kangar Courts Complex to face charges by the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC).

He would be facing charges at the Sessions Court.

Syafeeq Mohd Syukri claimed trial to a charge of submitting false claims amounting to RM19,000 for supplying drinks to the Perlis ruler.

He is accused of submitting a fraudulent government order under the name of Mohd Farid Abdul Hamid to the Raja of Perlis.

He was charged under section 18 of the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission Act 2009.

If convicted he can spend upto 20 years in jail and a fine of five times the amount of the false claim.

It was reported yesterday he and a former political secretary of the MB are facing charges for submitting false claims amounting to RM600,000.

The MB’s son, a former political secretary and a civil servant were part of six people detained on Apr 24 to assist in the investigation related to the implementation of infrastructure development projects, such as repair and maintenance work, supplies and services, throughout Perlis since 2022.

They were released two days later on RM10,000 bail each after their remand order expired.

The former political secretary will be charged in Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court today.
