Ex-MPSJ officer claims trial to RM250,000 cheating charge

SHAH ALAM: A former Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) officer claimed trial to 15 counts of making false claims by submitting 15 fake invoices from seven companies and an individual involving the supply of signboards and trash cans.

Ahmad Faizal Azhar, 41, who was an MPSJ community service assistant director, allegedly gave the fake invoices to MPSJ corporate and planning director Hamizun Mohd Basar and MPSJ community development department director Haini Salleh at MPSJ office between Jan 7 and Dec 30, 2011.

The claims were worth RM256,120 involving 460 trash cans and 96 signboards that allegedly were never supplied.

The accused was charged under Section 18 of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Act 2009.

Prosecuting officer Mahamad Sukri Abu Seman offered bail at RM5,000 for each count.

Lawyer Mohd Shahrullah Khan Nawab Zadah Khan told the court on Friday that a high bail amount would be a burden on the accused.

"His wife only has RM10,000 in her savings and she has brought all the money in preparation to bail out her husband," said Mohd Shahrullah.

He added, the accused just lost his father last week and has to take care of his mother.

Judge M. Bakri Abd Majid fixed bail at RM20,00 for all counts.

The case is set for mention on April 29.
