KUALA LUMPUR: Former Federal Land Development Authority (Felda) board of directors’ member Noor Ehsanuddin Mohd Harun Narrashi was acquitted and discharged today of 29 bribery charges after the prosecution withdrew all the charges.
His counsel Hasnal Rezua Merican said the prosecution had informed the court of the withdrawal of 29 charges during the case proceeding before sessions judge Suzana Hussin on May 21.
“Actually, the date (May 21) was set for continuation of the case hearing but the prosecution informed the court that they were withdrawing all the charges against the accused.
“This came about after the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) had investigated the defence statement under Section 62 of the MACC Act and was satisfied that all transactions made as stated in the charges were advances that had been fully repaid.
