MELAKA: A father and son claimed trial in the Sessions Court to criminal breach of trust (CBT) and abetment involving RM4.58mil.

Zamrud Mansor, 76, a former secretary with the Melaka Industrial Skills Development Centre (MISDC), pleaded not guilty yesterday to 42 counts of CBT.

He was charged with five counts of depositing RM4.3mil of MISDC’s funds into a bank account belonging to a company called MISDEC Resources Sdn Bhd.

He was also charged with 37 counts of CBT involving RM286,136.68 of MISDC’s funds, using the money for various purposes such as setting up MISDEC Resources, the rental deposit for a shophouse, insurance coverage, renovating a restaurant, buying cooking equipment for the restaurant, and the installation of air-conditioning and wiring.

Hazizul Zamrud, 44, who is MISDC administrative director, pleaded not guilty in the same court to 42 counts of abetting his father.

They were charged with committing the offences at the MISDC office in Lorong 1, Jalan PBB 6, Batu Berendam Industrial Park here, between March 19, 2014, and June 2, 2015.

The charges under Section 409 of the Penal Code carry a maximum 20-year imprisonment, whipping and a fine upon conviction.

Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) deputy public prosecutor Irwan Shah Abdul Samat offered bail at RM500,000.

Lawyer Azrul Zulkifli Stork requested lower bail on the grounds that his clients cooperated with MACC during the investigation.

Judge Norma Ismail set bail at RM250,000 each and ordered the accused to report to the MACC office every month. She set Feb 2 for mention. — Bernama
