Malaysia: Businessman charged over RM615,000 bribe to ‘settle’ Bukit Aman case

A businessman today pleaded not guilty at the Butterworth Sessions Court to a RM615,000 bribery charge to “settle” a Bukit Aman case involving another person last year.

Chan Eng Leong, 46, was charged with soliciting US$150,000 and accepting bribes in its ringgit equivalent from Goh Choon Kim between March 30 and 31, 2019, at about 5pm, at the Vangohh Eminent Hotel’s office at Machang Bubok, Bukit Mertajam.

Chan was also charged with accepting RM615,000 from Goh at the Global Tobacco Manufacturers Sdn Bhd office at Machang Bubok on April 1, 2019.

The sum was allegedly paid to “settle” an investigation by Bukit Aman into Goh Kim Heong under the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012 (Sosma).
