Ex-spy agency chief Hasanah released from MACC remand


PUTRAJAYA: Former spy agency chief Datuk Hasanah Abdul Hamid has been released from Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission MACC (MACC) remand on Monday (Sept 3).

Prosecutors from the anti-graft body had applied for her release, and was granted by magistrate Nik Muizzuddin Nik Muhammad.

The prosecutors had earlier applied for Hasanah to surrender her passport to the MACC and a deposit of RM50,000 be paid.

However, her lawyers Datuk Shaharuddin Ali and Mohd Khairul Azam Abdul Aziz argued that it was suffice for their client to surrender her travel documents.

Hasanah was remanded for six days to allow the MACC to investigate into alleged misappropriation of funds meant for the 14th General Elections.
In total, nine people have been arrested in connection with the case.
