JOHOR BAHARU – A man claimed trial in the Magistrate’s Court here Sunday to cheating a woman last year and using forged documents in 2006.
Iskandar Othman, 36, allegedly induced Amila Nasrah, 36, into handing him RM5,000 in cash to invest in a business of supplying clothing for several companies’ family day, which actually did not exist.
He allegedly committed the offence at an RHB Bank in northern Johor Baharu, at 4.52 pm on Dec 11, 2014.
Iskandar was also charged with using two documents, namely a bachelor’s degree certificate from Universiti Tenaga Nasional and a certificate from the Malaysian Institute of Accountants, as genuine, while knowing that they were fake.
The former financial executive at a consulting company, Exec Sdn Bhd, is accused of committing the offence at the company’s office in Taman Tampoi Indah, here, on Aug 7, 2006.
Magistrate Salina Omar set bail at RM5,000 for each charge and fixed Dec 3 for mention. The accused was not represented while the prosecution was conducted by deputy public prosecutor Muhamad Taufik Saberi. – BERNAMA
