SHAH ALAM — March 2, 2017: The former chief executive officer of TH Heavy Engineering Berhad, Datuk Nor Badli Munawir Mohamad Alias Lafti, was today charged with three counts of money laundering involving RM1.57 million four years ago.
Nor Badli Munawir, 51, claimed trial after the charges were read before Judge Asmadi Hussin. TH Heavy Engineering is an associate company of Tabung Haji.
He was charged with being involved in money laundering by accepting cash of RM400,000, RM570,000 and RM600,000 from Bicara Sepakat Sdn. Bhd. director Murhasmee Mukhtar.
Nor Badli allegedly committed the offences at a restaurant in Ara Damansara in 2013.
Deputy public prosecutor from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, Mohammed Heikal Ismail, proposed for Nor Badli to be released on bail of RM50,000 as he was also charged with two other counts of money laundering involving RM1 million at another court earlier today. For the two charges, he was allowed bail of RM50,000.
Judge Asmadi allowed Nor Badli bail of RM50,000 and for the three cases to be transferred to the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court. He set March 15 for remention of the cases in KL.
On Jan 26, Nor Badli pleaded not guilty to five counts of criminal breach of trust involving over RM2.5 million. — Bernama
