A former managing director of a shipping company will be charged in the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court today in relation to the construction of the littoral combat ships (LCS) for the Royal Malaysian Navy.

According to a source, the man will be charged with three counts of criminal breach of trust under Section 409 of the Penal Code.

A check of the court system shows that the case will be heard before judge Suzana Hussin, at 9am.

On Aug 4, the Public Accounts Committee disclosed that not a single ship had been completed, even though the project contract, worth RM6.083 billion, stipulated that five of the six ships should be completed and delivered by August 2022.
