Ex-govt official charged with graft


KUALA LUMPUR: A former Sarawak public works department official is charged with seven counts of accepting more than RM8,000 for his wife's car instalments as bribes.

Ismail Ahim, 51, claimed trial to the charges before Sessions Court judge Mohd Nasir Nordin here yesterday.

He was accused of accepting a cheque valued at RM1,078 on each of six counts and one count for RM2,156 between April 2007 and January 2008 from Syarikat Inai Kiara Sdn Bhd to pay for the car instalments of his wife, Norinah Abdul Ghani.

He allegedly committed the offences during his position as Sarawak PWD quantity survey assistant director.

Ismail was alleged to have accepted the cheques of RM1,078 at the Ambank branch in Taman Maluri.

MACC deputy public prosecutor Kevin Morais urged the court not to offer bail for Ismail while Counsel Fahri Azzat said his client was on a RM5,000 bail for another case.

Judge Mohd Nasir allowed a bail of RM3,000 for each charge and set Nov 7 for mention.

Borders manager has to stand trial


KUALA LUMPUR: Borders store manager Nik Raina Nik Abdul Aziz has failed in her bid to get a Syariah High Court to allow her charges over the distribution of the controversial Irshad Manji's translation book be withdrawn.

Earlier, Federal Territory Islamic Religious Department (Jawi) prosecuting officer Che Saufi Che Hussin said they respected a civil court's decision on March 22 for Jawi to withdraw the case.

"However, the Syariah Court could use its discretion on the matter," he said.

Nik Raina's lawyer Rosli Dahlan, however, applied to the syarie judge to release her, saying that the civil court found the charge to be unfounded.

Syarie judge Abdul Walid Abu Hassan dismissed the application yesterday, saying that Nik Raina had appeared to have used a civil court to avoid being tried at a Syariah Court.

"The accused is supposed to get ready to be tried. If it is proven that she is not guilty then she can be acquitted," he said. "We still do not know whether the book is in contradiction with the Islamic law or not," he added.

Abdul Walid said the prosecutor had the power to prosecute Nik Raina using a law approved by Parliament.

"Is it proper for the civil court to forbid KPS (syarie prosecution chief) to stop the prosecution (against Nik Raina), especially when this case is still at appeal stage?"

On June 19 last year, Nik Raina, 37, was charged at the Syariah High Court with distributing the book, which was deemed to be against Islamic law. No plea was taken from her.

Nik Raina allegedly committed the offence at Borders bookshop, owned by Berjaya Books Sdn Bhd, at The Gardens Mall in Mid Valley City here on May 23, last year.
