Kuala Lumpur: Former federal territory minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor has filed a notice of appeal in the High Court after being found guilty of the RM2 million graft charges against him.
High Court Justice Mohamed Zaini Mazlan said the prosecution had proven its case beyond a reasonable doubt and sentenced Ku Nan to 12 months in jail. He was also fined RM2 million in default for a six-month jail term.
Tengku Adnan’s lawyer Datuk Tan Hock Chuan confirmed the notice of appeal was filed yesterday via the court’s e-filing system.
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.
