MELAKA: A 38-year-old woman pleaded not guilty at the Sessions Court in Ayer Keroh to a charge of fleecing an elderly man, resulting in RM416,000 in losses since September last year.

Norhana Adam's plea was made before Judge Rohatul Akmar Abdullah on Friday(June 21).

According to the charge sheet, the accused is alleged to have deceived her 64-year-old male friend about an officer from the National Anti-Drug Agency who was purportedly being transferred to East Malaysia.

The accused had allegedly convinced the victim to hand over a total of RM416,000 in stages between September 2023 and June 2024 to help prevent the officer's transfer to either Sabah or Sarawak.

The charge was framed under Section 420 of the Penal Code for cheating.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Nur Syazwanie Marizan prosecuted while the accused was unrepresented.

The court set a bail of RM15,000 with one surety. The accused was also ordered not to interfere with prosecution witnesses and to report to the nearest police station every month.

The next mention date was set for Aug 6.
