PUTRAJAYA — Aug. 29, 2018: The country’s former intelligence chief Datuk Hasanah Abdul Hamid has been remanded for five days over alleged misappropriation of GE14 funds.

She is being investigated for using one’s office or position for gratification.

Hasanah was brought to the magistrate’s court in handcuffs and orange coloured lockup attire. She was arrested after she had her statement recorded at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission here yesterday.

She is believed to have been involved with seven other senior officers for abusing the funds for personal purposes.

Yesterday, a deputy director-general, also with a datuk honorific and six officers were remanded for five days relating to the same case.
