Suspended Commercial Crimes Investigation Department Director Comm Datuk Ramli Yusoff has been charged further with failure to disclose information on his ownership of 20,000 shares of Telekom Malaysia last year. The 56-year-old senior police officer pleaded not guilty to the charge yesterday.
Under Section 32(1)(a) of the Anti-Corruption Act 1997, the Public Prosecutor had given Ramli a notice dated 17 July 2007 to provide a written statement under oath of all his assets. The notice expired on 19 September 2007, and he was said to have failed to comply with the notice.
If convicted, Ramli faces up to 20 years’ jail and a maximum fine of RM100,000.
Hearing has begun on the three charges under the Anti-Corruption Act. Ramli was charged on 1 November 2007 for failure to disclose information about two office units belonging to his sisters and his shares in a property company.
