KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 19 ― Lembaga Tabung Haji (TH) chief operating officer Datuk Adi Azuan Abdul Ghani has been arrested and will be remanded in the lock up for 4 days until Saturday to aid the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) investigate  into allegation that he received bribes.

“The court remanded him for four days. That remand is to expire on Saturday, and of course, if MACC feels that they need more time, they can come and ask for extension on Saturday.

“He is being investigated under Section 17(a) of the MACC Act and that is soliciting and receiving bribes as an agent,” his lawyer, Adi Azuan’s lawyer Datuk Shaharudin Ali told Malay Mail.
