Penang exco Phee remanded five days over MACC probe



Penang executive councillor Phee Boon Poh, who was arrested by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) yesterday, has been remanded for five days.
Court registrar Ameera Mastura Khamis today granted the remand order.
Phee, who arrived at the court in a police van approximately 10am in handcuffs and in MACC's orange detainee uniform, was greeted by his wife, brothers and supporters.
Outside the court, Phee's supporters gathered since 9am, carrying banners and shouting slogans such as "MACC don't bully".
Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, deputy chief minister P Ramasamy, state excos Chow Kon Yeow, Danny Law, Afif Bahardin, Jagdeep Singh Deo, MPs Zairil Khir Johari and P Kasthurirani, and assemblypersons Cheah Kah Peng Peng, Lee Khai Loon, Teh Lai Heng were also present.

Lawyers RSN Rayer, Ramkarpal Singh Deo and K Pathiban represented Phee.
Phee was detained for alleged abuse of power over letters issued by his office involving an illegal carbon filter factory in Penanti, Penang, which has been in operation for about 15 years.
Phee oversees the environment, welfare and caring society portfolio.
The Sungai Puyu assemblyperson was nabbed when he had his statement taken at the MACC office in Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah yesterday afternoon.
MACC officers raided his office in Komtar and his residence in Butterworth yesterday, seizing documents and files related to the case.
