THE Selangor menteri besar’s strategic communications director Yin Shao Loong has been called to assist the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s (MACC) investigation into University Selangor (Unisel) at 10am tomorrow.
A summons to appear at the MACC headquarters in Putrajaya was sent to his office this afternoon, Yin told The Malaysian Insight tonight.
“The summons is regarding MACC’s investigation into Unisel, Mentri Besar Incorporated (MBI) and Jana Niaga Sdn Bhd,” said Yin.
On August 22, MACC raided the three entities, a move the Selangor government described as an attempt to smear its image.
It was reported that Jana Niaga allegedly received monetary compensation and a new contract from Unisel despite failing to complete a previous contract.
Unisel and MBI said in a statement that the deal was the result of a High Court and Court of Appeal order to settle the dispute between the university and Jana Niaga via arbitration.
“Both parties had refined and scrutinised several issues to arrive at an amicable solution,” said the statement signed by MBI chief executive officer Raja Shahreen Raja Othman and Unisel vice-chancellor and president Prof Dr Mohammad Redzuan Othman.
One of the main factors taken into account was to ensure that Unisel continued to provide good educational services and protected the welfare of its students.
