DUBAI: The case of Peremba Construction Dubai branch senior manager Zainal Adnan Khairuddin, charged with signing two company cheques, which were subsequently dishonoured, has been postponed to Oct 23 pending a settlement. 

His lawyer, Ali Mohammad Tamim, said yesterday that the postponement was sought to allow the parties to come to a settlement. 

“Zainal will have to come to court on that date,” he told Bernama after a brief hearing in the Dubai Court, which was conducted in Arabic. 

He had signed the cheques in his capacity as Peremba’s senior manager (finance). 

Zainal, 39, was the second signatory of the two cheques for one million dirham (about RM938,000) each. 

With the postponement, Zainal has spent more than a month in the police lockup. 

When brought to the courtroom today, Zainal, clad in a short sleeve shirt and black pants, appeared composed. 

He managed a smile upon seeing his wife, Arina Abdullah, 41, son Ali, 15, and daughter Najwa, 13, sitting at the public gallery. 

Present were family friends and Malaysia’s vice consul and assistant trade commissioner Remee Yaakub. – Bernama
