PETALING JAYA: Businessman Adam Radlan Adam Muhammad will face another charge at the Shah Alam sessions court next week for allegedly using proceeds from unlawful activities.
Deputy public prosecutors Fadhly Zamry and Farah Yasmin Salleh confirmed the matter during the mention of Adam’s pending Jana Wibawa fraud cases before two separate sessions courts presided by judges Azura Alwi and Suzana Hussin, respectively.
“During the last case mention, the prosecution informed the court of their intention to transfer the case to criminal sessions court 14 (before Suzana), but there has since been new developments. On Oct 25, the accused was charged under the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing, and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001 (Amla).
“The prosecution will also charge Adam Radlan with a similar offence at the Shah Alam court next week. We are, therefore, requesting a new date for the application on the case transfer,” said Fadhly, reported Bernama.
Both courts set Nov 28 for mention.
At today’s proceedings, Adam Radlan, the Segambut Bersatu deputy chief, was represented by lawyer Wee Yeong Kang.
Last week, he claimed trial to a charge of using the proceeds of an unlawful activity, framed under Section 4(1)(b) of Amla.
According to the charge sheet, he is accused of using the funds, amounting to RM500,000, held in his CIMB Bank account.
The offence is alleged to have been committed between December 2021 and February 2022 at the bank’s Bukit Tunku branch.
Adam Radlan is also facing five other charges relating to the Jana Wibawa programme.
On Feb 28, he was charged with soliciting a RM2 million bribe from Lian Tan Chuan as gratification to help Nepturis Sdn Bhd obtain a contract from the government worth RM141 million to build the Klang Utara police headquarters.
On Feb 21, he was accused of soliciting and accepting a bribe of RM500,000 to help MIE Infrastructure and Energy Sdn Bhd obtain a letter of agreement for a road construction project in Perlis under Jana Wibawa.
The following day, he claimed trial to two more charges of accepting bribes totalling RM4.1 million in relation to the programme in the Shah Alam sessions court.
