Jan. 20, 2020
JOHOR BARU: Johor Baru Umno division chief Tan Sri Shahrir Abdul Samad is unperturbed by the money laundering charge that would be slapped on him at a Sessions Court.
When contacted Monday (Jan 20), Shahrir said that going to the court works in his favour, as he would get a chance to defend himself.
"I have given my statement at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) building for about an hour this morning.
"I have earlier told the MACC that I wanted to bring the issue to court and I will now have my day in court to put up my defence against the allegations," he said.
Shahrir and Pontian MP Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan will be brought to court to face charges under the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001 at the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court on Tuesday (Jan 21).
According to the MACC, Shahrir will face one charge, while Ahmad will be slapped with two charges.
