A former Selangor state assemblyperson from PAS was released today after a two-day remand to facilitate investigation by the MACC for alleged abuse of government funds amounting RM50,000.
Magistrate Shazali Hidayat Shariff allowed the 56-year-old woman to be released on MACC bail of RM10,000 with one surety.
She was released at about 1.30pm at the Selangor MACC office after posting the bail.
The woman was held for investigation under Section 23 of the MACC Act 2009.
Yesterday, Magistrate Raja Noor Adilla Raja Mahyaldin issued a two-day remand order on the woman following an application by MACC.
According to a MACC source, the woman was believed to have appointed a company belonging to her son as a supplier for the constituency service centre’s community programme.
