PUTRAJAYA: Tan Sri Mohd Isa Abdul Samad has been released after being remanded by graft investigators for five days.

Registrar of subordinate courts  Datuk Zainal Abidin Kamarudin ordered for the former Felda chairman to be released on RM150,000 bail with two sureties.

Mohd Isa, 68, arrived at the Putrajaya court complex at 9.49am Sunday in a black MPV.

He was closely guarded by investigators as his friends, family members and supporters gathered outside the court.

Among those present was his wife Puan Sri Bibi Sharliza Mohd Khalid.  

Mohd Isa was remanded on Aug 16 as part of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission's (MACC) probe into the purchase of a hotel in London by Felda Investment Corporation (FIC).  

He was arrested at 4.24pm on Aug 15 at the MACC headquarters, where he was called earlier to have his statement recorded.

The MACC is investigating claims of discrepancies in the purchase of Park City Hotel in Kensington, London.

FIC is said to have purchased the hotel for an inflated price of RM330mil, when the actual value is said to be RM110mil.
