BUTTERWORTH: The service centre of the state executive councillor, who was remanded for investigations by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), has been raided by the commission’s officers, reported The Star Online.

The exco, the news portal reported went to the centre in an MACC vehicle and was escorted by officers on Sunday afternoon.

The officers carried out the search for more than an hour at the service centre which is located in a double-storey shophouse.

The exco is being remanded with two others for five days for investigations into an illegal factory in Kampung Sungai Lembu, Bukit Mertajam.

The other two people are a factory manager and his company director son.

The portal also reported that the exco was detained on Friday after he went to the MACC office to have his statement recorded while his office in Komtar was also raided by MACC officers.

It was also reported that MACC officers, on Thursday, seized documents related to the factory from the Seberang Prai Municipal Council.
