Remand extended for ministry sec-gen and son in graft probe

PUTRAJAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission has been granted extra time to quiz Datuk Mohd Arif Ab Rahman (pic) over allegations of corruption.

Magistrate Nik Isfahanie Tasnim Wan Ab Rahman on Wednesday allowed for the Rural and Regional Development Ministry secretary-general and his 34-year-old son to be remanded for another four days as investigators continue to probe Mohd Arif over alleged corruption, money-laundering and abuse of power.

Mohd Arif's 29-year-old son was released on bail.

The three arrived at the magistrate's court here at 9.55am in separate cars. They all had their faces covered.

Mohd Arif was arrested by MACC officers at his home in USJ3, Subang Jaya on Wednesday, last week.

His two sons were arrested at the MACC headquarters here after they were called in for questioning on the same day.

The following day, the magistrate's court accepted MACC's request for the three to be remanded for seven days to facilitate investigations.

Investigators have so far found cash and gold bars worth more than RM6mil, in addition to 150 luxury handbags and watches.

Titles of land plots around Klang Valley, registered under Mohd Arif’s family members' names, were also found.
