Adam Radlan Adam Muhammad claimed trial to two more bribery charges at the Sessions Court in Shah Alam today in connection with the Jana Wibawa scheme.
The 42-year-old Segambut Bersatu deputy chief was hit with similar charges in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.
Adam was accused of receiving RM2 million from one Lian Tan Chuan, as an incentive to help Nepturis Sdn Bhd obtain the North Klang district headquarters project from the government, worth RM141 million.
He was accused of committing the offence at a CIMB branch at the Jaya One shopping mall in Petaling Jaya, Selangor between April 4, 2022, and January 5, 2023.
In the second charge, Adam was accused of receiving RM2.1 million from one Mat Jusoh Mamat, who is the managing director of MIE Infrastructure & Energy Sdn Bhd.
He was charged under section 16(a)(A) of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Act 2009, which carries a maximum 20 years’ jail and a minimum fine of RM10,000 for each charge.
Adam was yesterday also charged at the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court on two counts of soliciting and accepting a bribe of RM500,000 over the same programme.
Bersatu information chief Wan Saiful Wan Jan yesterday claimed trial to accepting RM7 million in kickbacks in relation to the programme. – TMI
