KUALA LUMPUR: The Sessions Court will deliver its verdict next month in a case involving former Kuala Lumpur Criminal Investigation Department (CID) chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Ku Chin Wah (pic) who is charged with failing to declare all his sources of income.

Judge Sohaini Alias fixed May 26 for decision after the end of the defence's submissions.

She set the date after hearing clarifications and submissions from Deputy Public Prosecutor Budiman Lutfi Mohamed and Ku's counsel Datuk Geethan Ram Vincent on Friday.

Ku faces a charge of intentionally failing to comply with the prosecutor's notice under Section 49(1) of the Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorism Financing Act 2001 dated Dec 23, 2013.

He is accused of having failed to declare all sources of income in his sworn statement dated Jan 8, 2014 and is charged under Section 49(3) of the Act.

The offence is said to have been committed at the MACC headquarters in Putrajaya between Dec 23, 2013 and Jan 21, 2014.
