Ku Nan's appeal against conviction in RM2mil graft case fixed for hearing in April

PUTRAJAYA: The appeal filed by Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor against his conviction and sentence in the RM2mil graft case has been fixed for hearing in April.

Lawyer Datuk Tan Hock Chuan, who is representing the former Federal Territories Minister, confirmed that the appeal has been set for a two-day hearing on April 22 and April 23 by Court of Appeal deputy registrar Darmafikri Abu Adam during case management on Monday (Jan 25).

The proceedings were conducted via Zoom.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Rullizah Abdul Majid appeared for the prosecution.

Tengku Adnan was sentenced on Dec 21, last year, to 12 months in jail and fined RM2mil after the High Court found him guilty of corruption.

He was charged in his capacity as a public servant, namely as Federal Territories Minister, with having received for himself a total of RM2mil from businessman Tan Sri Chai Kin Kong, who is Aset Kayamas Sdn Bhd (AKSB) director, via a Hong Leong Islamic Bank cheque belonging to the company.

The cheque was deposited into a CIMB account owned by Tadmansori Holdings Sdn Bhd (THSB), which Tengku Adnan has an interest in, and is known to AKSB as being related to his official duties.

The Putrajaya MP was accused of committing the offence at CIMB Bank Bhd's Pusat Bandar Damansara branch here on June 14,2016.

The charge under Section 165 of the Penal Code carries a maximum two year's jail, or a fine, or both, upon conviction.
