The cheques for the amount were alleged to have been deposited into his law firm’s account with CIMB Berhad and AmIslamic Bank.

Sessions judge Azman Ahmad set mention for September 9 and granted bail at RM200,000 with one surety. He also ordered that Hafarizam to surrender his passport to the court.
