Judge served with remand order in hospital

MACC arrested the Sessions Court judge to assist in an investigation related to a case of illegal immigrants.

PUTRAJAYA: The two-day remand of a Sessions Court judge arrested by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to assist in an investigation related to a case of illegal immigrants was carried out at Putrajaya Hospital where he is being warded after complaining of chest pains this morning.

Reporters waiting outside the Magistrate’s Court here were told that the remand order on the 45-year-old judge had been served at the hospital.

“Remanded for two days,” said MACC chief commissioner Latheefa Koya briefly.

Yesterday, Latheefa said the judge had been detained following the arrest last week of a lawyer, a deputy public prosecutor and six policemen from Hulu Selangor district police headquarters.
