PUTRAJAYA : It's another four days of remand for a Kuala Lumpur City Hall senior official who allegedly received RM200,000.

The senior deputy director of a department in City Hall will be held until May 16 after magistrate Shah Wira Abdul Halim allowed an extension request by the MACC.

He and four others were earlier remanded on May 9 after investigators rounded them up for questioning.
