Nuzul Fadli, Selangor Menteri Besar Azmin Ali’s nephew, together with a company director, had their remand extended to Friday.

The two men were remanded for another three days, while another company director and a site manager were released on Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) bail of RM15,000 and RM10,000, respectively with one surety each yesterday.

The suspects, aged between 34 and 67, arrived at the magistrate’s court in Putrajaya at 9.30am, clad in orange MACC lock-up T-shirt and escorted by MACC officers.

Nuzul, who is believed to be in advertising, was represented by lawyer Gobind Singh Deo.

The four men were arrested on Nov 29 by the MACC over their alleged involvement in illegal sand and gravel-mining activities in Selangor.

Following the arrests, MACC froze RM4 million from a mining company’s bank account.

The case is being investigated under Section 16 of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Act 2009 for soliciting bribery.
