JOHOR BARU: A 40-year-old former senior manager of a company, who is facing 128 counts of cheating charges, has landed himself in trouble again when he was slapped with 27 more counts of falsifying company purchase documents.
Foo Tseh Wan, who previously worked for the Johor Baru branch of Toyota Tusho (M) Sdn Bhd, pleaded not guilty to the 27 charges for falsifying company purchase order documents amounting to RM50.9 million involving purchases of plastic raw materials two years ago at his former workplace in Jalan Dato Abdullah Tahir.
In March last year, Foo claimed trial to 115 counts of cheating offence involving false claims worth RM101.64 million and subsequently in January this year claimed trial to 13 other charges of money laundering involving an amount of RM500,000.
Putrajaya's Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission prosecuting officer Mahadi Abdul Jumaat requested for the court to maintain the previous bail of RM450,000.
Sessions judge Mohd Fauzi Mohd Nasir granted the request and fixed Jun 20 for case mention.
Foo is being charged under Section 18 of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Act 2009 and faces 20 years maximum imprisonment and can be slapped with a fine of up to RM10,000 or five times the amount cheated upon conviction.
