GEORGE TOWN: Former Penang Port Commission chairman Jeffrey Chew has been released on bail after being questioned by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in connection with the Penang undersea tunnel project.

Clad in a red shirt and donning a red mask, Chew was seen exiting the Penang MACC headquarters at 12.55pm today, accompanied by Penang Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Bukit Gelugor, Ramkarpal Singh, and Jelutong MP RSN Rayer.




Ramkarpal, who is one of Chew’s lawyers, said Chew was released on bail without any conditions attached.

“At the moment, there are no other conditions (for Chew’s bail),” he told reporters outside the Penang MACC office here.

It is learnt that the bail amount for Chew was RM100,000.
