GEORGE TOWN – Four bank accounts owned by Penang state executive councillor Phee Boon Poh (pic) have been frozen over investigations into an illegal carbon filter-processing factory in Sungai Lembu.
A source from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) said the personal accounts of the state Welfare, Caring Society and Environment Committee chairman, totalling about RM2mil, were frozen before the weekend.
“We are still investigating,” he said Sunday, adding that MACC officers are still recording statements from the relevant parties.
It was reported that the MACC had conducted several raids on Phee’s two houses in Butterworth, his office in Komtar and his service centre in Sungai Puyu.
Phee, factory owner Edmond Gan Eu Lee and his father Gan Buck Hee were arrested by the MACC on Aug 11.
All three were released on Aug 14 after their remand orders were set aside by the High Court.
The MACC intends to appeal the decision.
