MACC raids Penang exco's houses, service centre


Norlela had expressed disappointment after claiming that she was being blamed for the arrest of Phee following her efforts to close down the illegal carbon filter factory.

He said so far three Seberang Perai Municipal Council (MPSP) officers had been called to give their statements.

On Friday, two officers from the Enforcement Department and the Licensing Department were also called up.

Phee, who is also Sungai Puyu assemblyman, went to his service centre in a MACC vehicle escorted by officers at around 12.15pm on Sunday (Aug 13). With them was Phee.

Phee's office on Level 53, Komtar was also raided by MACC officers. His application to challenge the remand order has been rejected by the Alor Setar High Court today.

"It is my opinion that the review application should be filed in Penang as it is the suitable forum for this matter", he said in a brief judgment.

Jack Wilshere 'resigned to leaving Arsenal'
Wilshere's contract expires at the end of the season, meaning he could be available for a cut-price bargain. Wilshere's preference is to stay at Arsenal and he has dropped to the Under-23s in a bid to prove himself.

Meanwhile, Ramkarpal Singh, when met by reporters, said he would file the application for a revision of the remand order at the Penang High Court today.

The MACC and several enforcement agencies first raided the factory on Thursday following complaints from villagers that its fumes could affect their health.

"I'm glad that action has finally been taken, but don't treat me like a criminal".

"DAP must know that playing the victim had worked in the previous election but Malaysians are beginning to see DAP's hypocrisy when it comes to corruption, so playing the victim is only making fools out of their supporters".

"DAP should allow the MACC to do its work without any hindrance and own up when their leaders are embroiled in corruption", Ti said in a statement.

Ramkarpal told the High Court it had jurisdiction since the Malayan High Courts possessed jurisdiction for all West Malaysian states but Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) deputy public prosecutor A. Hafiizh Abu Bakar told the court the matter should be raised in Penang as the case originated there.
