The High Court today found former federal territories minister Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor guilty of receiving RM2 million from a businessman four years ago.

Judge Mohamed Zaini, who delivered the verdict at the Kuala Lumpur court complex, ruled that the prosecution had proven its case beyond reasonable doubt.

Tengku Adnan, popularly known as Ku Nan, had been charged in his capacity as a public servant with having received for himself a total of RM2 million from businessman Chai Kin Kong, who is Aset Kayamas Sdn Bhd director, via a Hong Leong Islamic Bank cheque belonging to the company which was deposited into a CIMB account owned by Tadmansori Holdings Sdn Bhd, in which Tengku Adnan had an interest.

Tengku Adnan, who is MP for Putrajaya, was accused of committing the offence at the Pusat Bandar Damansara branch of CIMB Bank Bhd on June 14, 2016. He was charged under Section 165 of the Penal Code which carries an imprisonment of up to two years, a fine or both upon conviction.

Zaini said there was no evidence to show that Tengku Adnan had withdrawn RM2 million from Tadmansori’s account to pay the expenses of the by-elections in Sg Besar and Kuala Kangsar.

“It is undoubtedly apparent that the RM2 million remained in Tadmansori’s account for the accused’s benefit and not to pay for the two by-elections,” Zaini said, adding that Tengku Adnan had used Tadmansori “as a facade for his crime”.
