The Alor Setar High Court has rejected an application by lawyers for Penang state executive councillor Phee Boon Poh against a five-day remand order.

The applications were filed by Ramkarpal Singh and RSN Rayer for Phee while Dev Kumareandran acted for the other two.

The Star Online said judge Hashim Hamzah told the lawyers the applications should be made in Penang.

"Since the Penang High Court is not open on Sunday, we are here in Kedah to file our submissions", he said to reporters.

Phee's lawyers are now in the midst of obtaining a revision on the five-day remand order from a Alor Star High Court.

MACC had led a multi-agency operation on the carbon filter processing factory in Sungai Lembu near Bukit Mertajam for allegedly flouting federal regulations.

Dr Norlela said she was also accused of raising the issue at a time when a general election was due soon, stating she had raised the issue after many villagers had complained about the factory.

A factory manager and his 37-year-old company director son have also been remanded for five days.

On Sunday noon, MACC officers raided the service centre of Phee, who is also Sungai Puyu assemblyman, in Butterworth.

Phee, who is state Welfare, Caring Society and Environment Committee chairman, was detained on Friday after he went to the MACC office to have his statement recorded.

MACC officers were seen leaving the premises with bags of documents seized.

Phee's office on the 53rd floor of Komtar was also raided by MACC officers.

The commission had conducted a joint raid on the factory yesterday, together with officers from the Department of Environment and Immigration Department.
