MACC raids Shafie Apdal’s house in KK

(The Star) – Graft investigators raided the house of Parti Warisan Sabah president Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal after he was discharged from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital on Saturday.

Shafie, who spent two of his four-day remand at the hospital for hypertension was discharged at about 2pm and was immediately taken to his residence in Taman Gold View here as part of investigations into the alleged skimming of RM1.5bil funds for rural development projects in Sabah.

It is learnt that the investigators took him back to the Sabah Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) office for further questioning.

Shafie was arrested on Oct 19 but was immediately taken to hospital as he suffered from high blood pressure.

MACC sources have said that their investigations were hindered because they were unable to carry out standard operating procedures to check on Shafie’s house in Kota Kinabalu, Semporna and Kuala Lumpur without his presence.
