Malaysia: Prosecution seeks to amend 2 of Guan Eng’s corruption charges

The prosecution in Lim Guan Eng’s corruption case over the Penang undersea tunnel and roads project is seeking to amend two of the four charges the former chief minister is facing.

Deputy public prosecutor Wan Shaharuddin Wan Ladin told the Sessions Court here today that they will tender the amendments during the next mention date on Oct 28, when Lim is present in court.

Lim was exempted from attending today’s proceedings as he needs to attend the Penang state assembly meeting.

Judge Azura Alwi told the prosecution she has no problem in setting the dates for the trial next year.

“But we will set the dates and read the charges on Oct 28 in the accused’s presence,” she said.
