An 31 year old executive in Perodua has been detained by the Anti-Corruption Agency for arranging faster delivery for the Perodua Myvi car, which currently has a reported waiting list of seven months long.

The man had been working with certain Perodua dealers to enable their customers to get their Perodua Myvi delivered faster at an additional cost of about RM2-4K each. This fees was to be split 50-50 between him and the dealers.

The ACA also detained a 41-year old car dealer from Klang involved in this scheme. One that is found guilty of corruption can be fined up to RM10,000 or five times the bribe amount, whichever is higher, and between two weeks to 20 years in jail.

The Star reports initial investigations have shown the man had transactions which earned him up to RM40-50K so far. That would mean a RM200,000 fine.
