SHAH ALAM: Two men were charged in the Sessions Court here on Tuesday, Feb 22 with two counts of cheating a businessman into giving them RM1.5 million for a proposed road upgrading project in Pahang last September.
Construction company directors Mohd Rozian Md Yunus, 48, and Faaris Mohd Yusof, 44, claimed trial to the charges.
They are alleged to have cheated the businessman by informing him, through a letter of intent dated Aug 30, 2010, that their company, Eurisco Bina Sdn Bhd, was awarded the project to upgrade the Benta-Jerantut road in Maran, Pahang Darul Makmur Phase 1 (Jerantut-Benta) - Segment 8,9 & 10 (Design & Build) by the Public Works Department.
Following this, the businessman was induced into giving them two RHB Bank Bhd cheques worth RM500,000 and RM1 million, respectively, which he would not have done, had he not been cheated.
Mohd Rozian and Faaris are alleged to have committed the offences at a meeting room on the ninth floor of Wisma Rozali, Section 13 here on Sept 8 and 20, last year. – Bernama
