PETALING JAYA: Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor (pic) has been charged for accepting RM2mil from a property developer in his capacity as the Federal Territories Minister at the time over the land deals involving Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL).

According to online news portal Free Malaysia Today (FMT), the Putrajaya MP had allegedly received the money from Chai Kin Kong through a cheque issued by Aset Kayamas Sdn Bhd.

The report said Tengku Adnan received the money despite knowing that the company had official dealings with his ministry at the time.

He was accused of committing the crime on June 14, 2016 at the Pusat Bandar Damansara CIMB bank branch. 

Tengku Adnan claimed trial before judge Azman Ahmad.

He was charged under Section 165 of the Penal Code, which carries a maximum of two years’ imprisonment or fine or both, if convicted. 

The report said Azman was allowed bail of RM500,000 with one surety.

Previously, Tengku Adnan was charged for receiving RM3mil in bribes from property developers. 

Tengku Adnan was accused of corruptly receiving RM1mil from property developer Datuk Tan Eng Boon through a cheque belonging to Pekan Nenas Industries Sdn Bhd, which was deposited into Tengku Adnan’s account. 

In the second charge, Tengku Adnan was accused of accepting RM2mil from Chai which was deposited into the bank account of Tadmansori Sdn Bhd.

However, According to FMT, deputy public prosecutor Julia Ibrahim had applied for a discharge not amounting to an acquittal for the RM2mil case involving Chai on grounds that the facts of the RM1mil case involving Tan were different.

It said both cases were supposed to be heard before the same judge but would now be heard before separate judges as both facts of the case were different. 

The report added that the application to transfer the RM1mil case to the High Court would be heard on Friday while the RM2mil case has been fixed for mention on Jan 7, 2019.
