PUTRAJAYA: Former Malaysian External Investigation Organisation (MEIO) director-general Datuk Hasanah Abdul Hamid has been brought to the magistrate's court here to be remanded.
The 61-year-old arrived at the court complex at 9am on Wednesday (Aug 29) in a Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) vehicle.
She was clad in the usual orange MACC lockup outfit.
Hasanah was arrested at the MACC headquarters on 4.15pm Tuesday (Aug 28), after she had arrived to give a statement to the anti-graft body.
MACC sources say she is being investigated for alleged misappropriation of funds meant for the 14th General Election.
On Tuesday, seven civil servants including a high-ranking officer from the research division of the Prime Minister's Department were also remanded for alleged misappropriation of GE14 funds.
Previously, Hasanah had courted controversy when it was revealed that she had written to CIA director Gina Haspel, appealing to the United States to support former premier Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak's administration.
Several screenshots of the letter were leaked and went viral.
