KUALA LUMPUR - A former marketing director of a construction company has been charged in the Sessions Court here with 10 counts of cheating and falsifying documents involving the purchase of five semi-detached houses worth RM11.62mil (S$4.5 million).
Yee Hooi Ling, 41, who was the former marketing director of Syarikat BHL Construction Sdn Bhd, is accused of cheating the company's director Zaiful Ayu Ibrahim Ibrahim by inducing him into believing that the company had approved a discount of RM2,378,000 to her for the purchase of a three-storey, semi-detached house at Lot S-20 in USJ One Park worth RM2,378,000.
Yee's act resulted in Zaiful, 42, signing a credit note belonging to the company.
She faces four other charges of duping Zaiful into believing that the company had approved discounts of RM2,348,000, RM2,318,000, RM2,288,000 and RM2,288,000 to her for the purchase of the three-storey, semi-detached units at Lot S-21, S-22, S-25 and S-28 in USJ One Park.
The offences were allegedly committed at the company's premises at Level 3, Jalan Robson here on July 18, 2011.
Yee was charged under Section 417 of the Penal Code which carries a maximum five years' jail or a fine or both upon conviction.
She also faces five charges of dishonestly using five credit notes dated July 18, 2011, as genuine, belonging to the company when enclosing the documents as exhibits for the purpose of obtaining a court order to get titles for the houses.
She allegedly committed this at the Kuala Lumpur High Court on Jan 9 this year.
Yee was charged under Section 471 of the same act which provides a 20-year imprisonment and a fine upon conviction.
She claimed trial to the 10 charges before judge Mat Ghani Abdullah yesterday.
The judge set bail at RM50,000 with one surety pending mention on Thursday. He also ordered Yee to report to the Damansara police station once a month.
