KUALA LUMPUR: Three more Umno members including a branch chief had their statements recorded by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).
The branch chief, who is still being detained, is believed to be an agent for the Datuk vying to become a supreme council member in the March party elections.
The Datuk, a former political secretary who was arrested by the MACC on Thursday, has been released on bail pending investigations.
Sources said the MACC was monitoring several more people and would be calling them in for questioning soon as it widens its probe into money politics.
The MACC has to date arrested more than 15 people who were allegedly paid between RM300 and RM500 by the Datuk to ensure victory in the Umno elections.
