PETALING JAYA: A 66-year-old man had his remand order extended to assist police in their investigation into the illegal withdrawal of RM150,000 from the Employees Provident Fund (EPF).
The unemployed man was suspected to have attempted to withdraw the money from a bank in Bandar Baru Sungai Buloh on Feb 17, with two people who had earlier been charged in a Sessions Court here.
The man, from Kuang, was believed to have attempted to cheat and abet with the duo to withdraw the amount from a RM322.48mil account.
Magistrate Esther Tan Siew Choo issued an extension of four days remand order effective today.
On March 24, assistant manager of the EPF, Aziz Endut, 47, pleaded not guilty in a Sessions Court here to cheating, abetting and using forged documents in the illegal withdrawal of RM150,000.
