Company director charged with illegal deposit-taking involving RM189,000

13th July, 2018

LABUAN: A young company director was charged in the Magistrate’s Court here Thursday with three counts of illegal deposit-taking involving RM189,000 earlier this year.

Mohd Wannor Ramdan Awang, 23, who was not represented, however, pleaded not guilty to all charges before Magistrate Leona Dominic Mojiliu.

On the first count, the man was charged with accepting RM37,800 from the complainant, Arjuna Yusof, through another person, Temening Abdul Azis, who acted as intermediary, and the money was allegedly deposited into his company Global Mining Pro’s CIMB account on March 29.

On the second count, he was alleged to have committed the offence by accepting RM113,000 that was also deposited into his company’s account on April 3 from the same complainant through the same person.

He was also charged with committing the offence by taking cash of RM37,800 from the complainant through the same individual at Deens Restaurant, Financial Park Complex, on April 9.

The illegal deposit-taking charge under Section 420 of the Penal Code, provides for jail sentence and whipping. The court allowed the accused bail of RM9,000 for each charge under two local sureties and set July 30 for remention of the case.

The man and his ‘middleman’ were arrested on July 5 by the Labuan Commercial Crimes Investigation Department led by ASP Haslina Hassan in connection with the investment scam of RM1.3 million over the past four months. Prosecuting officer ASP Hasnan Abidin appeared for the prosecution. –Bernama
