KUALA LUMPUR: The general manager of the police cooperative was charged with criminal breach of trust involving RM96,000 in a Sessions Court here yesterday. 

Wan Raselan Wan Husin, 44, claimed trial to committing the offence on July 21, 2003, at the police cooperative building in Jalan Sultan Sulaiman here. 

The charge under Section 409 of the Penal Code carries a two- to 20-year jail term with whipping and an optional fine upon conviction. 

Judge Nursinah Adzmi set bail at RM20,000 in one surety and ordered Wan Raselan to surrender all his travel documents to the court. She also ordered him to report monthly to the nearest police station. 

Wan Raselan being led away by a police officer from Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court Tuesday after he was charged with criminal breach of trust involving RM96,000.

Wan Raselan’s wife posted bail. 

Amer Hamzah Arshad, one of two counsel representing Wan Raselan, requested an early trial, claiming that the stigma was tremendous on his client, and that the case was of public interest. 

The judge fixed trial on Jan 16 to 20 next year.  

Deputy Public Prosecutor Azmi Ariffin told the court that 15 witnesses would be called. 

Wan Raselan was arrested on Monday, after eight months of police investigations following a report lodged by a director of the cooperative in October. 

The cooperative, formed in 1928 to provide loans to police personnel, is involved in various businesses through subsidiary companies, such as construction, engineering, computers, hotels, real estate, aviation, education and transportation. 

Besides senior police officers who are office-bearers in the cooperative, several civilians are also entrusted with its operations. 

The organisation, now a conglomerate, owns more than RM720mil in assets.
