Baling MP’s son released after recording statement.

Former Tabung Haji chairman Datuk Seri Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim’s son who was detained by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) yesterday to assist investigations into a corruption case, has been released after he finished giving his statement early this morning.

According to MACC sources, the unemployed 24-year-old man was released at about 2am on Saturday.

He was detained at around noon yesterday after presenting himself at the MACC headquarters.

It was reported that his detention was linked to MACC’s probe into a corruption case involving a government project worth millions of ringgit.

It is believed that graft authorities quizzed him over his father’s alleged money laundering activities.

The man was the fifth individual arrested by the MACC over the same case since September 26, including his father, who is also Umno Supreme Council member, and uncle, Abdul Latif Abdul Rahim.

Both of them were released yesterday on RM1 million bail each after being remanded for 10 days.
