Senior Armed Forces officer charged with corruption involving RM2,500

SHAH ALAM (Bernama): A senior officer of the Malaysian Armed Forces (ATM) has been charged in the Sessions Court here with three counts of corruption involving RM2,500.

Lieutenant Colonel Shafizan Amin, 47, however, pleaded not guilty to all the charges before judge Rasyihah Ghazali here on Wednesday (Sept 22).

According to the charge, Shafizan, as assistant commanding officer at the Strategic Relations Regiment, Paya Jaras Camp, Sungai Buloh, was alleged to have received RM2,500 in three transactions from Mohd Hazizy Mohd Nor through a Bank Nasional Simpanan account belonging to one Rosaida Yaacob.

The money was allegedly for works carried out by Mohd Hazizy's company, Essential Operation Solution, at the camp.

The offence was allegedly committed at the Bank Islam branch in Putra Height between May 2 and July 28, 2020.

The charge, under Section 165 of the Penal Code, provides an imprisonment for up to two years, or a fine, or both, if found guilty.

Rasyihah allowed Shafizan bail of RM5,000 and ordered him to report himself at the Shah Alam Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) office on the first week of every month.

The court set Oct 25 for mention.

Deputy public prosecutors from MACC Mohd Aliff Shahruzaman and Tuan Attfina Tuan Kamaluddin prosecuted, while Shafizan was represented by lawyers Mohd Aidil Arsad and Mohd Shukri Ahmad Mansor. – Bernama
