Businessman arrives at Shah Alam Sessions Court to face new Jana Wibawa charges

SHAH ALAM: Businessman Adam Radlan Adam Muhammad has arrived at the Sessions Court here to face two corruption charges linked to the Jana Wibawa programme.

This comes after he claimed trial to two counts of charges linked to the Jana Wibawa graft case on Tuesday (Feb 21).

The Segambut Bersatu division deputy chief was accused of soliciting for himself bribes with a value of between 3.5% and 7% of the project to be acquired by a managing director of MIE Infrastructure & Energy Sdn Bhd.

The money was allegedly an inducement for him to assist the company to obtain an acceptance letter under the Jana Wibawa programme from the government.

He allegedly committed the offence at a restaurant in Dutamas here, sometime in March 2021.

On the second charge, Adam Radlan was accused of receiving RM500,000 through his CIMB Bank account from an MIE Infrastructure & Energy managing director as an inducement for him to assist the company in obtaining an acceptance letter for a project called “Projek Membina Jalan Sg Adam ke Kg Banat, Perlis” from the government through direct negotiations. The project was valued at RM47.8mil.

Both charges were framed under Section 16(a)(A) of the MACC Act 2009.

Jana Ekonomi Pemerkasaan Kontraktor Bumiputra Berwibawa or Economic Recovery of Authorised Bumiputra Contractors (Jana Wibawa) was set up in Nov 2020 to empower bumiputra contractors struggling during the pandemic.
