MACC raids Phee's service centre, houses

Norlela's "Thank you, MACC", which was posted on her Facebook, came right after state executive councillor on environment, welfare and caring society Phee Boon Poh was arrested by the anti-graft commission for alleged abuse of power on Friday.

Alor Setar High Court judge Datuk Hashim Hamzah was reported by The Star Online as saying that the applications should be filed in Penang instead as the state would be the suitable forum for the matter.

He said since all high courts of Malaya can hear cases from other parts of West Malaysia, they would head to Alor Setar since Sunday was a working day there.

At a press conference later after the verdict, Ramkarpal said he was disappointed with the outcome and would be filing the same application at the Penang High Court tomorrow.

Rayer said they hoped to have Phee released soon.

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).


The MACC is believed to be investigating an issue regarding a sawdust factory in Bukit Mertajam suspected of flouting environmental regulations.

A factory manager and his 37-year-old company director son have also been remanded for five days.

MACC officers were seen leaving the premises with bags of documents seized.

Phee's office on Level 53, Komtar was also raided by MACC officers.

The MACC and several enforcement agencies also raided the factory Thursday, following complaints from villagers who feared fumes from the factory could affect their health.

The Immigration Department and Inland Revenue Board also participated in the operation.
