Court to hear NFCorp boss’ case on March 11
KUALA LUMPUR: The Sessions Court will hear next month an application by National Feedlot Corporation Sdn Bhd (NFCorp) executive chairman Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Salleh Ismail to strike out two criminal breach of trust charges against him.
Sessions judge S. M. Komathy Suppiah fixed March 11 to hear the matter after meeting deputy public prosecutor Nor Azimul Azami Mohamad Nor and lead counsel Datuk Seri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah in chambers.
“The defence had applied to strike out the two charges on grounds they were defective and have no elements of criminal breach of trust,” Nor Azimul said.
He said the judge had set March 11 to hear Dr Mohamad Salleh’s affidavit.
On March 12 last year, Dr Mohamad Salleh claimed trial to misusing funds amounting to RM9,758,140 through four cheques to partly finance the purchase of two units of One Menerung Condominium in Block B here for the National Meat and Livestock Corporation Sdn Bhd, which he owns with one of his sons.
The second count involved a transfer of RM40mil into the company account between May 6 and Nov 16, 2009.
