Hamid Apdal, the brother of Part Warisan Sabah (Warisan) president Mohd Shafie Apdal, has been arrested by MACC.

Sources told Malaysiakini Hamid was arrested at 9.30pm, after around three hours of questioning at the MACC office in Kota Kinabalu.

Hamid had turned up at the MACC office at 10am today after the commission failed to locate him at his house last night.

Malaysiakini understands that Hamid was taken to his house at 3.30pm with five MACC officers in Putatan.

The MACC officers were seeking evidence to facilitate their investigation into the alleged siphoning of funds for rural dev elopment in Sabah.

They were there until 6pm, before Hamid was taken back to the MACC office.

According to The Star Online, at least two Sabah assemblypersons and another senator are also expected to be called in to give their statements.

A BN component party senator was released yesterday after having his statement recorded over the matter, added the report.

Earlier today, two Sabah Umno Youth leaders and a Warisan Youth chief were remanded for five days pertaining to the case.

Umno Youth information chief Jamawi Jaafar, who is also Tenom Umno Youth chief, was detained along with Warisan Youth chief Mohd Azis Jamman at the Sabah MACC headquarters in Kota Kinabalu yesterday.

The third person, Tawau Umno Youth chief Ariffin Kassim, was arrested at the graft buster's office in Tawau.

Jamawi is currently serving as a special officer in the Communications and Multimedia Ministry, and it is learned that his arrest was in regard to his tenure as an aide to Mohd Shafie when the latter was rural and regional development minister.

Mohd Azis was Semporna Umno Youth chief before he left the party and subsequently joined Warisan.

The remand on Warisan vice-president Peter Anthony, who was arrested last Thursday, was also extended to a further three days, from the original five.

The arrests are in connection with funds allegedly misappropriated from projects in Sabah, which were to be carried out by the Rural and Regional Development Ministry prior to Shafie's sacking during the Cabinet reshuffle in 2015.
