Kuala Lumpur: Former Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor has been found guilty of receiving RM2 million graft from businessman Chai Kin Kong. This could bring an end to his political career as he may be disqualified as an elected representative and will not be able to participate in the next general election.
High Court Judge Mohamed Zaini Mazlan said the prosecution had proven the case beyond a reasonable doubt, while Ku Nan failed to raise any doubt in the prosecution case.
He said he has conducted a maximum evaluation of all the evidence tendered in court and found him guilty of the charges accused. The charges, under Section 165 of the Penal Code, carry a maximum penalty of two years’ jail and a fine, if convicted.
The sum was allegedly deposited into Tadmansori Holding Sdn Bhd’s account, in which the accused has an interest, and knowing that Aset Kayamas had connections with his official function.
The offence was allegedly committed at CIMB Bank Bhd, Pusat Bandar Damansara Branch, on 14 June 2016.
