The Penang High Court allowed applications by Penang state executive councillor Phee Boon Poh and two other suspects for release from a five-day remand in a corruption investigation on an illegal factory in Penang. Judicial Commissioner Datuk Abdul Wahab Mohamed said the remand order issued against Phee and two other men from the factory contravened Section 117 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CPC) that deals with remand orders.
