Ku-Chin-Wah-gavelKUALA LUMPUR: The Sessions Court here today fixed May 26 to decide on a case involving former Kuala Lumpur Criminal Investigation Department (CID) head Ku Chin Wah, who is charged with failing to declare earnings from a commission of nearly RM1 million four years ago.

Judge Sohaini Alias set the date after hearing submissions from deputy public prosecutor Budiman Lutfi Mohamed and lawyer Geethan Ram Vincent, who represented Ku.

Ku, 59, was charged with failing to comply with a notice under Section 49(1) of the Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorism Financing Act, dated Dec 23, 2013, when he failed to declare the source of earnings in a sworn statement dated Jan 8, 2014.

He allegedly committed the offence at the MACC headquarters, Block D6, Federal Government Administrative Centre, Putrajaya, between Dec 23, 2013 and Jan 21, 2014.

The charge, under Section 49(3 ) of the same law, carries a fine of up to RM1 million, or imprisonment not exceeding one year, or both, if found guilty.

On Dec 2 last year, Ku was ordered to enter his defence on the charge.
