SHAH ALAM: A former senior accounts executive claimed trial to 61 counts of criminal breach of trust amounting to RM258,000 at a Sessions Court here.
Goh Siew Ha, 56, was accused of using 61 cheques from Alliance Bank, belonging to an antique car company TTG Eastern Holdings Sdn Bhd where she worked, for her personal use by depositing the cheques into her Maybank account.
Goh allegedly committed the offence at TPG Eastern Holdings’s office in Subang Jaya between April 27, 2009 and Feb 1, last year.
She faces a maximum of 14 years in jail, whipping and fine.
DPP Iswa Tonie told the court that Goh’s crime was non-bailable but requested for a RM50,000 bail if the court would exercise its discretion.
Lawyer K.A. Ramu, who represented the accused, said his client has two children and was currently unemployed.
“The bail is too high. My client’s brother-in-law is prepared to pay bail of RM20,000. Her husband cannot become a bailor as he is unemployed and a bankrupt,” he said.
Aslam then fixed bail at RM35,000 and ordered for Goh’s passport to be impounded.
The case is set for mention on Feb 20.
