KUALA LUMPUR - Five more individuals and another company have been charged in connection with the gold investment scheme company Genneva Malaysia Sdn Bhd.

The five and Ng Advantage Sdn Bhd were charged in the Sessions Court here yesterday with 277 counts of money laundering involving RM937 million (S$360 million).
