PETALING JAYA: Controversial politician Datuk Seri Jamal Yunos, who is receiving treatment at a hospital, has been remanded until tomorrow over a firearm case.

Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Fadzil Ahmat said the Sungai Besar Umno chief had been remanded for three days.

“It will allow us to investigate the case thoroughly,” he said.

Jamal was arrested at about 1.15pm on Tuesday at Ampang Puteri Hospital over investigations into a case under Section 34 of the Firearms Act 1960.

Section 34 refers to carrying a firearm while drunk, which carries up to a year in prison, a RM2,000 fine or both upon conviction.

Selangor police chief Comm Datuk Mazlan Mansor said that they received a report on the case on May 12.

He also said there were several other cases involving Jamal that were still under investigation and that two arrest warrants would be served on him once he had finished treatment.
