‘Datuk Roy’ out on bail in Jana Wibawa probe

PUTRAJAYA: “Datuk Roy” – or Mohd Hussein Mohd Nasir – has been released on bail after having been held on remand to assist the investigation relating to the Jana Wibawa probe.

Lawyer Fahmi Abd Moin told the press that the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) did not make any further application to extend his client’s remand and asked for Mohd Hussein to be released.

Also released with Mohd Hussein was an unnamed former court deputy registrar, who was also remanded to assist in the same investigation.

According to Fahmi, the MACC had recorded statements from both men.

“Both men cooperated fully during the investigation, and they can be called again for further investigation if necessary,” he said.

Magistrate Irza Zulaikha Rohanuddin allowed for the release of the men on MACC bail with one surety each and ordered for them to report to the MACC office monthly.

Mohd Hussein was first held on a three-day remand granted by the Kuala Lumpur Magistrate’s Court under Section 17(a) of the MACC 2009 in connection to the Jana Wibawa scandal.

He was later released but held on a second, four-day remand granted by the Putrajaya Magistrate’s Court, which ended yesterday.

On March 9, the MACC arrested four people aged between 40 and 50, including an MACC officer and a woman.

They were alleged to have solicited and accepted a bribe of RM400,000 to prevent an investigation into the case.
