Former Federal Territories minister Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor’s RM1 million corruption trial scheduled to begin today has been postponed to next month because of the conditional movement control order (CMCO).
A five-day hearing will begin on Dec 7 before High Court judge Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali, deputy public prosecutor Julia Ibrahim told FMT.
All criminal trials and appeals in Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and Putrajaya have been vacated since Oct 14 because of the CMCO.
On July 23, Nazlan fixed new trial dates after the case was grounded last year as Tengku Adnan, popularly known as Ku Nan, attempted to disqualify the trial judge on grounds of bias.
A three-member Federal Court bench, who allowed the prosecution’s appeal, ruled on July 18 that judges were professionals and delivered judgments based on evidence.
