Phee: I don’t have RM2mil in my bank accounts

GEORGE TOWN: Penang executive councillor Phee Boon Poh, who is under anti-graft investigation over the operations of an illegal carbon filter-processing factory in Sungai Lembu, says he does not have RM2mil in his bank accounts.  
He also denied that four of his bank accounts, which contained the said amount, was frozen by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).
He added that he has not been served with any notice by the MACC about it. 
Phee was responding to reports in several media, such as Utusan MalaysiaNew Straits TimesThe StarSin Chew Jit Poh and Guang Ming Daily which quoted MACC sources saying that his bank accounts, containing about RM2mil, were frozen. 
Speaking at a press conference here Monday, Phee said he would be filing a defamation suit against the media organisations.
Phee, 66,  was detained on Aug 11. Factory owner Edmond Gan Eu Lee, 37, and his father Gan Buck Hee, 70, were also arrested.  
They were released on Aug 14 after the Penang High Court set aside their remand orders. 
Judicial Commissioner Datuk Abdul Wahab Mohamed ruled that the five-day remand issued on Aug 12 contravened Section 117 of the Criminal Procedure Code.
The MACC, however, intends to appeal the decision.
