Jamal Yunos arrives at Ampang Court Complex

(The Star) – Accompanied by police personnel, fugitive Umno politician Datuk Seri Jamal Yunos arrived at the Ampang Court Complex to face multiple charges.

Sporting in a black cap, he arrived here at 3.57pm on Thursday (July 5). He was brought to a lock-up room to have his statement recorded.

The Sungai Besar Umno division chief is expected to be charged under Section 224 of the Penal Code at the Ampang magistrate’s court.

The Sungai Besar Umno division chief was earlier escorted by several personnel from the Royal Malaysia Police as he arrived at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) from Indonesia at about 3.15pm on Thursday.

Jamal was arrested while having a haircut in Jakarta on July 2.

He is being investigated for at least six offences, including creating public nuisance by breaking bottles of alcohol to protest the Better Beer Festival at the Selangor state secretariat building on Oct 5 last year.

The police launched a manhunt for him after it was discovered that he was missing from his ward at Ampang Puteri Specialist Hospital on May 25.

An arrest warrant was issued for Jamal on June 1 for the offence of escaping or resisting arrest.
