Immigration DG released on bail

PUTRAJAYA: Immigration Department director-general Datuk Abdul Wahid Md Don, remanded last Friday over an Anti Corruption Agency (ACA) investigation into the issuance of visas for foreign workers, was released on bail on Monday. He was brought before Magistrate Mazuliana Abdul Rashid of the Kajang Magistrate's Court here who released him on an ACA bail of RM150,000 with two sureties, Bernama reported.

Handcuffed and escorted by three ACA officers, Wahid arrived at the court at 11am and was released 10 minutes later. Speaking briefly to reporters he said: "The ACA officers carried out their task courteously and professionally. I don't intend to comment further. Let the court decide on the case."

The ACA had so far arrested nine people over the case and the agency's director-general Datuk Seri Panglima Ahmad Said Hamdan has been quoted as saying that more people are expected to be arrested.
