Charged with failing to comply with an order to appear on March 3 for questioning.
Mohamad Shafiq Abdul Halim, who is aide to former Bersatu information chief Wan Saiful Wan Jan, today claimed trial to a charge of obstructing the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s (MACC) investigations.
Shafiq had accused the MACC of offering Wan Saiful a RM10 million bribe to implicate his party president, Muhyiddin Yassin, in a corruption case.
Shafiq was charged with failing to comply with an order to appear on March 3 for questioning in connection with the affair.
The 32-year-old was charged under Section 48 of the MACC Act and if convicted, will face a maximum RM10,000 fine or jail term of up to two years or both.
Shafiq pleaded not guilty to the charge in the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court.
The judge set bail at RM10,000 and also ordered the accused to surrender his passport to the court.
April 7 was fixed for case mention.
