Datuk Mohd Yusof Abu Hassan, 56, was charged with 11 counts of money laundering and four counts of criminal breach of trust involving RM19.3mil at the Malacca Sessions Court on Tuesday.
He faces 11 charges under Section 4(1)(b) of the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001 (Amlatfa) for allegedly transferring RM8,188,074.87 earned from illegal activities between March and September 2016.
Based on his remaining four charges under Section 409 of the Penal Code, Mohd Yusof, as an agent of Taraf Budi Development Sdn Bhd and SP Enterprise Sdn Bhd, allegedly used cheques from the said companies totalling RM11.2mil between February and August 2016.
Under Section 4(1)(b) of Amlatfa, he can be sentenced to jail for up to 15 years and fined no less than five times the value derived from the illegal activity or RM5mil, whichever is higher, if found guilty.
For the four charges under Section 49 of the Penal Code, he faces another jail term of no less than two years and no more than 20 years and a fine, if convicted.
His charges were read before magistrate Judge Norma Ismail, who set bail at RM1.6mil with one surety and ordered that he surrender his passport to the court and to report to the Malacca Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) office every month.
The court fixed June 22, 2017 for further mention.
The accused was detained at 7.30pm on Monday at the MACC office in Malacca where he was summoned to give a statement.
He was first arrested on Nov 28 last year and was released on bail of RM100,000 with two sureties. He was rearrested on Dec 2 to assist in investigations into illegal money-laundering activities and was released on bail of RM100,000, after being detained for 24 hours.
MACC also seized more than RM150mil in cash, vehicles, other assets and documents from him.
