Malaysia: Prosecution confirms Guan Eng will face two new corruption charges

The prosecution in former Penang chief minister Lim Guan Eng’s corruption case in relation to the undersea tunnel project has confirmed that he will be facing two new charges in Butterworth on Friday.

Deputy public prosecutor (DPP) Wan Shaharuddin Wan Ladin told Sessions Court judge Azura Alwi this when Lim’s case was mentioned here today.

“We have served the accused a summons to inform him about the two charges under Section 403 of Penal Code,” he said.

Wan Shaharuddin informed the court the prosecution will make amendments to Lim’s particulars on the charge sheet, by substituting his race from “Malay” to “Chinese” and his age from 59 years to 60.
