Following the three charges of money laundering on Tuesday amounting to RM1.3 million, Superintendent Azmi Osman was in court yesterday for two more similar charges amounting to RM2.8 million.

The 52-year-old officer who is currently with the Internal Security and Public Order Department at the Bukit Aman police headquarters was accused of accepting RM2,093,300 into his Maybank bank account in Mentakab on 6 February 2002 and 20 December 2002.

The second count was for accepting RM683,850 into his account on 7 January 2003 and 2 October 2003.

Again under the Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorism Financing Act, Azmi faces a fine of up to RM5 million, or five years’ jail, or both, for each charge.

The judge fixed bail at RM100,000 with one surety for each charge and allowed the cases to be heard in the Sessions Court in Johor Baru on 31 October 2007 together with the first three charges.

Azmi posted bail in the afternoon.
