MACC interviews Penang exco believed to be over illegal factory

The Star Online reported that the 70-year-old man and his 37-year-old son were detained at about 6.45pm when they arrived at the state MACC headquarters in Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah to have their statements recorded.

A team of five officers of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) today raided the office of Penang exco member Phee Boon Poh on the 53rd floor of Kompleks Tun Abdul Razak (Komtar), here.

Rayer, when met by reporters outside of the MACC Office said Phee, who is also Sungai Puyu assemblyman, would probably be taken to the court today for a remand order to be obtained against him.

Azam said six MACC officials had also searched Phee's house in Taman Desa Oren, Sungai Puty, Butterworth earlier today.

Meanwhile, a candlelight vigil has been organised outside the MACC office at 9.30pm, following Phee's arrest.

Phee was previously arrested for being part of the Voluntary Patrol Squad, or PPS, which was outlawed by the home ministry.
