The remand order was issued by Magistrate Shah Wira Abdul Halim until August 19.

Mohamaddin, who is also the member of Parliament for Lahad Datu, said threats and ‘offers’ came after the issue of his secretary being sought by the MACC was reported by the media.

The media on June 12 reported that the MACC was tracking down suspects to assist in the probe of corruption cases involving advertising projects under the ministry worth RM90 million.

The case is being investigated under Section 17 of the MACC Act 2009.
