Ku Nan’s RM1mil corruption trial will be heard before a new High Court judge as report says.
Following the Court of Appeal’s decision last Feb 12 that permits Tengku Adnan’s appeal to disqualify Justice Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali, case will now be heard before another judge.
Deputy public prosecutor Julia Ibrahim filed an application for a stay of proceedings pending the result of the prosecution’s appeal against the appellate court’s decision at the Federal Court to Justice Muhammad Jamil.
Justice Muhammad Jamil allowed the application and set March 25 for the next case management. Back in Nov 15,2018, the ex Federal Territories minister accused of receiving RM1mil from businessman Datuk Tan Eng Boon through a cheque deposited into his CIMB Bank account. This was a motivation to approve an application by Nucleus Properties Sdn Bhd (now known as Paragon City Development Sdn Bhd) to increase the industrial plot ratio of a piece of land on Jalan Semarak.
