Fourth Charge : Datuk Ramli Yusoff To Be Produced in Kota Kinabalu Court Today

KOTA KINABALU : Federal Commercial Crimes Investigation Director Datuk Ramli Yusoff will be slapped with a fourth charge – for abuse of power – in Sabah today.

Ramli, who was a former Sabah Commissioner of Police, is expected to be produced in a Sessions Court here on charges under Section 15 of the Anti-Corruption Act.

The senior officer was charged in Kuala Lumpur on 1 November with not disclosing information about two office units belonging to his sister and on shares which he allegedly owned.

He is on RM20,000 bail and has been suspended from his post.

Ramli has returned from performing the umrah in Mecca with the Kelantan royalty.

It is learnt that the latest charge against Ramli, 55, is centred on allegations that he used a Cessna aircraft belonging to the Police Air Wing to inspect his land project in Lahad Datu, Sabah.

ACA Deputy Director-General Datuk Abu Kassim Mohamed confirmed that Ramli would be charged here.

The senior officer, in his capacity as a public servant, was also charged with being involved in business as a company director.
