KOTA KINABALU: A Parti Warisan Sabah vice president has been released on Malaysia Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) bail today.

Magistrate Cindy Mc Juce Balitus, who arrived at KPJ Sabah Specialist Centre in Damai where the politician is being warded for health issues since last week, issued the release.

According to The Star Online, his lawyer Martin Tommy said the MACC bail was set at RM50,000 with two local sureties.

“He is recuperating.”

The politician was the first of seven individuals detained by the MACC on Oct 5, for probes into the alleged siphoning of funds meant for rural projects in Sabah between 2009 and 2015.

The English news portal reported MACC prosecuting officer Mohd Faliq Basirudin saying the paperwork for his release would be done at the state MACC office later.
