After a seven-day remand, Johor executive councillor Abd Latif Bandi was released on a RM200,000 deposit today.
"He was released with a RM200,000 deposit and with oral bail.
"If he breaks the bail, he will have to pay another RM500,000," Abd Latif's lawyer Abdul Rahim Ali told Malaysiakini.
Abd Latif was arrested in relation to a probe concerning housing and land issues.
He was detained on March 9 under Section 17 of the MACC Act and Section 4 of the Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001.
Abdul Rahim said the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) did not impose any additional condition on his client.
Yesterday, Abdul Rahim was reported to have said he expected MACC may apply to further detain his client.
Previously, MACC arrested six individuals in relation to the case. They included Abd Latif's son and the exco member's special officer.
MACC also seized 26 luxury vehicles and froze 45 bank accounts in connection with the case.- Mkini
