The Magistrate’s Court in Shah Alam has issued an arrest warrant against the founder of Sugarbook application, Chan Eu Boon, following his failure to appear for court mention and document submission today.

Aliff said Chan’s lawyer and bailor were also absent from court for document management today.
The court fixed May 15 for Chan to state his reasons for his absence today as well as for mention of the arrest warrant.

He was charged under Section 505 (b) of the Penal Code which provides for a maximum jail term of two years, a fine, or both, upon conviction.
