Bank exec on RM68,000 CBT rap
Kota Kinabalu: A 29-year-old former bank executive claimed trial to committing criminal breach of trust involving a sum of RM68,000.
Rafidah Ramli made the plea before Sessions Court Judge Ainul Shahrin Mohamad to the charge against her.
She allegedly breached the trust by withdrawing the money from the account of a customer and used it for her own.
Rafidah is accused of committing the offence between Dec 15, 2016 and Aug 28, 2017 between 9am and 5am at the Hong Leong Bank in Jalan Haji Saman, here.
The offence under Section 408 of the Penal Code carries a jail term of between a year and 14 years, and whipping, on conviction.
The court set Sept 6 for case management and released Rafidah on a bail of RM5,000 in a local surety.
Deputy Public Prosecutor Umar Faiz appeared for the prosecution while counsel Nurul Rafeeqa Afdul Mutolip defended Rafidah.
Meanwhile, a 28-year-old man will know on Aug 3 whether he has a case to answer on a charge of robbing a woman journalist.
Sessions Court Judge Azreena Aziz fixed the date for Omar Lamat when the prosecution closed its case after calling eight witnesses in the hearing.
Omar is accused of robbing Kristy Inus, 38, of her handbag at 7.35pm on Nov 18, 2017 at a parking lot in Penampang ByPass, Jalan Pintas Penampang.
DPP Husna Abudl Halim conducted the prosecution while Omar was not represented.- Cynthia D Baga
