KUALA LUMPUR: A former Sarawak public works department official is charged with seven counts of accepting more than RM8,000 for his wife’s car instalments as bribes.
Ismail Ahim, 51, claimed trial to the charges before Sessions Court judge Mohd Nasir Nordin here yesterday.
He was accused of accepting a cheque valued at RM1,078 on each of six counts and one count for RM2,156 between April 2007 and January 2008 from Syarikat Inai Kiara Sdn Bhd to pay for the car instalments of his wife, Norinah Abdul Ghani.
He allegedly committed the offences during his position as Sarawak PWD quantity survey assistant director.
Ismail was alleged to have accepted the cheques of RM1,078 at the Ambank branch in Taman Maluri.
MACC deputy public prosecutor Kevin Morais urged the court not to offer bail for Ismail while Counsel Fahri Azzat said his client was on a RM5,000 bail for another case.
Judge Mohd Nasir allowed a bail of RM3,000 for each charge and set Nov 7 for mention.
