KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 2 ― The Sessions Court today ordered former Kuala Lumpur CID chief Datuk Ku Chin Wah to enter his defence on a charge of failing to declare the sources of his income three years ago.
Judge Sohaini Alias fixed February 6 next year for Ku to enter his defence.
The court made the decision after hearing the testimonies of seven prosecution witnesses in a trial that started on May 4 and ended on August 3.
Ku, 58, faces a charge under the Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorism Financing Act for allegedly failing to comply with a prosecutor's notice dated December 23, 2013 to declare all the sources of his income in a sworn statement dated January 8, 2014.
Sohaini today allowed an application by DPP Budiman Lufti Mohamed to amend the charge to include the word “intentionally” before “failing to comply”.
Ku allegedly committed the offence at the headquarters of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission at Block D6, Federal Government Administrative Centre, Federal Territorial of Putrajaya, between December 23, 2013, and January 21, 2014.
Ku is represented by counsel Datuk Geethan Ram Vincent. ― Bernama
