PETALING JAYA: The trial of businessman Adam Radlan Adam Muhammad, who has been slapped with six more money laundering charges, will be held in the Kuala Lumpur sessions court.

This comes after Shah Alam sessions court judge Azura Alwi granted the prosecution’s application to transfer Adam’s charges to the KL court.
According to Harian Metro, deputy public prosecutor Farah Yasmin Salleh said the prosecution will now request that all these 12 charges be heard together.
Judge Suzana Hussin is set to preside over the cases.
