KeADILan assemblyman for Penanti Mohd Fairus Khairuddin was been detained by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission for questioning.
“He has not been arrested,” said MACC investigating director Syukri Abdul.
Syukri added that Fairus had been detained to facilitate investigations into allegations of illegal activities with quarry operators in Penang.
The 33-year old had on Saturday tendered his resignation as Penang’s deputy chief minister and state executive councillor for Entrepreneurial and Co-operative Development, and Information and Community Relations. The resignations take effect on April 8.
