Gnanaraja to face 68 more charges


PUTRAJAYA: Businessman G. Gnanaraja, 38, who is already facing charges of cheating will be hauled to court again over 68 money laundering offences involving RM11.4mil.

He is to be charged at the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court today.

He was arrested at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission headquarters around 11.40am yesterday after prosecutors received the go-ahead from the Attorney-General’s Chambers.

“There are multiple charges against him with money involved said to be RM11.4mil,” said a source.

Last week, Gnanaraja was slapped with three counts of deceiving a managing director into paying him RM19mil in three transactions between July and August in 2017.

In return, Gnanaraja would help “settle” an ongoing investigation by anti-graft officers on Consortium Zenith Constructions Sdn Bhd, the main contractor of the Penang under­sea tunnel project.

He pleaded not guilty.
