PUTRAJAYA, Aug 31 ― Three individuals who were released yesterday after the five-day remand order on them regarding an investigation on abuse of power and misappropriating RM15 million expired, have been re-arrested.
A Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission spokesman said the trio were re-arrested at the MACC headquarters here at 4pm yesterday to assist investigations pertaining to money-laundering.
They are among four individuals including the managing director of a bank with the title of “Datuk” who were remanded for five days from August 26 in connection with the abuse of power and misappropriation cases.
Magistrate Nik Isfahanie Tasnim Wan Ab Rahman allowed the trio to be further remanded until this Friday.
They were being investigated under the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001, said the spokesman.
Those re-arrested were the procurement director of a bank and co-owners of a publishing company. ― Bernama
