Umno supreme council member Datuk Seri Abdul Azeez Rahim, his elder brother Latiff and a cousin were brought to the Putrajaya Magistrate's Court at 10.30am on Wednesday to be remanded in connection with corruption and money laundering allegations.

On May 23, the MACC raided Abdul Azeez's homes and offices and seized RM500,000 in cash, 20 watches and several pieces of jewellery.

The former Tabung Haji chairman claimed part of the money was from his Umno allocation, while some of the foreign currencies seized were from Kelab Putera 1Malaysia.
