KUALA LUMPUR: Consultant Datuk Shamsubahrin Ismail did not inform former Natio- nal Feedlot Corporation executive chairman Datuk Dr Mohamad Salleh Ismail that his consultancy firm had ceased operations in 2009.
The 48-year-old said Shamsubahrin Consultancy Sdn Bhd was wound up by the Shah Alam court on March 5, 2009 and the order was never lifted.
To enable him carry out with the new consultancy services, he needed approval from the Insolvency Department, he added in reply to Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission head of prosecution Datuk Abdul Razak Musa during cross-examination of his defence yesterday.
He agreed that he also needed to have the winding-up directive lifted.
He also said that he was not awarded a Datukship but he received a letter of appointment from the Sultan of Pahang in 2009, and had used the title in various official dealings.
Earlier, responding to his counsel Hasnal Rezua Merican during the examination-in-chief, he said he lodged a police report against Dr Mohamad Salleh because he “had victimised me and wished to make me his scapegoat for his wrongdoing against NFCorp and the Government”.
Shamsubahrin is charged with duping Dr Mohamad Salleh by promising him consultation services, claiming that he was ordered by the former Prime Minister to assist the NFCorp chief when it was not true.
Shamsubahrin also offered to carry out consultancy work purportedly worth RM2.75mil.
He faces a charge of cheating Dr Mohamad Salleh by dishonestly persuading him to hand over a cheque for RM225,000, leading him to believe that part of the money would be paid to Commercial Crimes Investigations Department officers to close their investigation into NFCorp.
Shamsubahrin faces three other charges of duping Dr Mohamad Salleh into handing over cheques for RM500,000, RM300,000 and RM700,000 for the same purpose at a restaurant and several banks between Nov 20 and Dec 5, 2011.
He also faces 17 counts of money laundering totalling RM1.755mil at several banks in Petaling Jaya between Nov 25 and Dec 13, 2012.
