Prior to his arrest, five MACC officers accompanied him to his house where a search was carried out for three hours.

HAMID Apdal, the younger brother of Parti Warisan Sabah (Warisan) president Shafie Apdal, has been remanded for five days starting today.

Hamid is the latest of Shafie's key allies, including his nephew Warisan youth chief Datuk Azis Jamman, 43, and Warisan vice-president Datuk Peter Anthony, 46, who have been arrested and are under remand.

Martin Tommy, Hamid's lead counsel, said his client, said to be a member of Semporna Umno and a businessman, is being investigated under Section 17 (A) of the MACC Act.

Hamid, 52, was arrested at the MACC office here last night.

Investigators also visited his home in Putatan on Monday, and again yesterday.

Three politicians held by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission for investigations into the alleged siphoning of Federal funds meant for Sabah arrived at the courthouse here where they are expected to be remanded.

Over 100 opposition supporters gathered at the Kota Kinabalu Court House from 8.30am to continue giving support to their two leaders who have been remanded by the Magistrate to assist the MACC's graft probe over the alleged misappropriate of RM1.5 billion public funds meant for rural projects in the State.

The RM1.5 billion was said to be part of RM7.5 billion allocated for water, electricity and road infrastructure development projects.

The former minister has said the probe is politically motivated but that he is ready to meet the agency's officials.
