KUANTAN: A senior finance manager of Pasdec Holdings Berhad has been acquitted of all charges of criminal breach of trust.
Sessions Court judge Mohd Ghazali Mohamad Taib ruled that the prosecution had failed to prove a prima facie case against Ahmad Rosdi Ismail, 51.
"Therefore, after making the maximum assessment of the entire prosecution's case through the witnesses, the evidence presented as well as the witnesses' credibility, the court is satisfied that the prosecution has failed to prove a prima facie case and thus the accused is acquitted and discharged of all charges without being called to defend himself," Mohd Ghazali said in his decision read by judge Siti Aminah Ghazali recently.
Ahmad Rosdi was charged with five counts of criminal breach of trust involving a total of RM320,000 from 2014 to 2016.
He was represented by M. Athimulan and Datuk Bob S. Arumugam, while Siti Sarah Zainal Abiddin appeared as deputy public prosecutor for the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).
Pasdec Holdings is an investment holding company with its subsidiaries and associate companies principally involved in property development, project management, civil and building construction among others.
