It is understood that Abdul Azeez will be brought to court for a remand hearing tomorrow.

On May 23, the MACC raided Abdul Azeez’s homes and offices and seized RM500,000 in cash, 20 watches and several pieces of jewellery.

The former Tabung Haji chairman claimed that part of the money was from his Umno allocation while some foreign currencies were from Kelab Putera 1Malaysia (KP1M).

The MACC is expected to issue a statement on the arrests soon.
