The High Court here today has fixed four days beginning Jan 10, next year for former Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor (picture) to enter his defence on the charge of accepting a bribe of RM2 million from a businessman, three years ago.

Judge Mohamed Zaini Mazlan fixed Jan 10, 17, 20 and 21 next year for Tengku Adnan to rebut the prosecution’s case after finding that the prosecution has made out a prima facies case against the accused.

When asked by an interpreter about his defence proceedings, Tengku Adnan, 68, who was looked calm chose to testify under oath from the witness dock.

Earlier, lawyer Datuk Tan Hock Chuan told the court that the defence team would call five or six witnesses, including his client to testify.

According to the charge sheet, Tengku Adnan as a public servant, namely, Federal Territories Minister, had accepted for himself RM2 million from Managing Director of Aset Kayamas Sdn Bhd, Tan Sri Chai Kin Kong via a Hong Leong Islamic Bank cheque belonging to Aset Kayamas which was later deposited into the CIMB Bank account of Tadmansori Holdings Sdn Bhd in which he had an interest, when it was known that Aset Kayamas had connection with his official duties.

He is alleged to have committed the offence at CIMB Bank Berhad, Pusat Bandar Damansara Branch here on June 14, 2016 under Section 165 of the Penal Code, which provides for a jail term of up to two years or fine or both, if convicted.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Julia Ibrahim led the prosecution team.

New twist in Ku Nan’s corruption trial

KUALA LUMPUR: A new twist emerged at Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor’s corruption trial today when a key witness revealed what could possibly be a vital piece of evidence.

As he took the witness stand, Aset Kayamas Sdn Bhd managing director Tan Sri Chai Kin Kong produced a receipt from his wallet that he had allegedly received from Umno for a RM2 million political donation.

Earlier, Tengku Adnan’s lead counsel Datuk Tan Hock Chuan had asked Chai whether he had received any acknowledgement letter for the RM2 million payment, which was made to Tadmansori Holdings Sdn Bhd.

Chai, who is the 19th prosecution witness, said: “Yes, it is in my pocket now” before he took out his wallet and handed the receipt to the court.

Tan, who appeared shocked, examined the receipt and then requested that it be tendered as a defence exhibit before he continued with his cross-examination.

However, deputy public prosecutor Julia Ibrahim objected to it.

Chai said the receipt was given to him by Tengku Adnan, two days after he had handed over the cheque at the latter’s office.

Tan: The receipt was given to you by Umno for your RM2 million donation for two by-elections in Sungai Besar and Kuala Kangsar?

Chai: Yes.

Tan: Does the cheque’s number appear on the receipt?

Chai: Yes.

Tan: Why you keep the receipt in your wallet?

Chai: I usually keep important documents, for example my pistol’s licence and praying amulets, in it.

Chai said the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) had ask for the receipt, but he could not remember where he had placed it, at the time.

“They asked for the receipt when I was called to give a statement for the first time.

“After I answered that I cannot remember where I put it (receipt), they did not ask about it again,” he said.
