KUANTAN: A married couple claimed trial to 15 counts of money laundering amounting to RM2.4 million.

Ahmad Shahabudin Talib, 36, and his wife, Ummie Salwanis Harus, 32, were charged with 10 and 5 charges respectively, before the Sessions Court here today.

Shahabudin is alleged to have funnelled the money through his multiple bank accounts to purchase two multi-purpose vehicles and pay off his Amanah Saham Bumiputera loan, among others.

Ummie is accused of moving the money through various bank accounts to pay off her Perbadanan Tabung Pendidikan Tinggi Nasional (PTPTN) loan, among others.

The couple is alleged to have committed the offences at various banks and financial institutions here and in Kuala Lumpur, between Dec 24, 2012, and Sept 25, 2013.

Shahabudin, whose various sole ownership companies' accounts were purportedly involved in the money laundering, and Ummie may be fined up to RM5 million, jailed not more than five years, or sentenced to both penalties, if convicted under Section 4(1)(a) of the Anti-Money Laundering Act 2001.

Judge Unaizah Mohd granted RM25,000 bail with one surety for each accused and fixed Nov 25 for mention.
