KUALA LUMPUR: A former City Hall clerk was charged in a magistrate's court with five counts of dishonestly using a forged document to convince five people that they would each be able to obtain a lot at the Selayang wholesale market.
Saiful Suhairi Md Noor, 47, was charged with using a forged 1998 wholesale market offer letter signed by a Mohd Shukran Abdul Halim to dupe the five people.
He had allegedly committed the offences on three separate occasions between Feb 24 and Aug 24, 1999. Saiful Suhairi claimed trial to all five charges.
Anti-Corruption Agency deputy public prosecutor Roshan Khatriya suggested a RM5,000 bail for each of the charges but the accused urged the court to lower the bail.
Magistrate Hanim Abdul Rahman fixed bail at RM3,000 for each charge and set Nov 5 for mention to allow the accused time to appoint a counsel.
