KUALA LUMPUR: The director of an advertising firm has claimed trial to 12 charges of falsifying documents in relation to Tourism Malaysia contracts.
Ibrahim Omar, 45, was charged at the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court yesterday.
Ten of the charges he is facing are under Section 471 of the Penal Code, which carry an imprisonment of up to two years or fine, or both, if convicted.
Two other charges were under Section 18 of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Act 2009.
If convicted, he could face a maximum of 20 years in jail and a fine not less than RM10,000 or five times the amount of the bribe.
He allegedly committed seven of the offences in September last year, while another five offences were alleged to have been committed in June this year.
Judge Azura Alwi set bail at RM250,000 in one surety and set additional conditions for the accused to surrender his passport to the court.
Ibrahim also needs to report to the MACC office in Putrajaya every month.
The case was fixed for mention on Sept 1.
