KUALA LUMPUR: A former chief executive officer of Malaysian Technology Development Corporation Sdn Bhd (MTDC) claimed trial at the Sessions Court here yesterday to a charge of committing criminal breach of trust (CBT) involving RM53,510. 

Datuk Anuar Md Nor, 48, is alleged to have committed the offence at 84 Jalan 1/76D, Desa Pandan, here, on Dec 16, 1999. 

MTDC is a joint-venture capital company set up under the International Trade and Industry Ministry between the Government and private sector.

Anuar, who is from Taman Setiawangsa, is charged under Section 409 of the Penal Code, which carries a jail term of up to 20 years, whipping and a fine, upon conviction. 

At the court proceedings yesterday, Anuar told Judge Akhtar Tahir he was innocent and had not appointed a lawyer. 

DPP Roshan Kshatriya then asked the court to impose a RM10,000 bail with one surety. He also asked the court to order Anuar to surrender his international passport. 

Pleading for a lower bail, Anuar said he had been unemployed for the past three years since being sacked as the CEO of MTDC. 

“My family is staying in Kuala Lumpur. Even my property is here. I will not go anywhere.  

“My children are still schooling, Your Honour. Please reduce the bail to RM5,000,” said Anuar. 

Akhtar, who imposed a RM10,000 bail with one surety, said the amount was reasonable in view of the charge. He fixed Feb 6 for mention. 

The judge also ordered Anuar to surrender all his travel documents to the court. 

Anuar, whose family was in court throughout the proceedings, posted bail.
