KUALA LUMPUR: A former office assistant has been ordered to enter his defence on two counts of criminal breach of trust involving the Certificate in Legal Practice (CLP) 2001 draft question papers. 

Sessions Court judge Nursinah Adzmi ruled that the prosecution had proven a prima facie case against Ramli Md Mokhtar, 32, on both charges.

The accused, formerly attached to the Malaysian Legal Profession Qualifying Board’s office, appeared calm when the court delivered its verdict yesterday. 

Under the first charge, Ramli is alleged to have committed breach of trust in connection with the draft question papers for the July 2001 CLP examination, entrusted to him at the board’s office at the 27th floor, Menara Tun Razak, between June and July 2001. 

He is accused under the second charge of committing breach of trust in connection with the draft question papers of the Evidence 2001 Supplementary Examination for the October examination at the same place between Sept 26 and Oct 8, 2001. 

Ramli said he wanted to give evidence under oath. 

Nursinah then told Ramli he could call the three witnesses offered by the prosecution for his defence. 

“You can also call your own witnesses later,” the judge said. 

She set five days beginning Feb 20 for the continuation of the trial. 

Ramli had on June 11, 2002 claimed trial to both charges. 

A total of 18 prosecution witnesses had testified since Oct 26 last year.  

DPP Noorin Badaruddin later said the prosecution had offered another three witnesses for Ramli to consider calling for his defence.  

They were Ramli’s wife and High Court judges Justices Abdul Wahab Patail and Abdul Wahab Taib, who are also members of the board.
