Parti Islam SeMalaysia (PAS ) former deputy president Nasharudin (in picture) claimed trial to three counts of money laundering and 30 counts of criminal breach of trust (CBT) amounting to about $1million on Tuesday (22 Oct). He pleaded not guilty to all 33 charges.
Judge Rozilah set bail at RM80,000 with one surety for the three counts of money laundering and RM250,000 with one surety for the 30 CBT charges.
Nasharudin also must surrender his passport to the court until the case is over.
Nasharudin is one among several individuals being probed by MACC (Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission) in relation to claims that PAS had received RM90 million from Umno, which is suspected to be from 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB). MACC added that all additional information on the case will be made known when the charges are read in court.
Nasharudin lost the deputy president’s post and stayed out of the 13th general election. He was then appointed by former premier Datuk Seri Najib Razak in 2015, as the chief executive officer of the Global Movement of Moderates. New Straits Times reported.
