High Court Imposes 24 Months Imprisonment Term on Former Transmile CEO

25 January 2022 |  Kuala Lumpur 

The High Court today allowed the SC’s appeal and increased the jail sentence of former Transmile Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director Gan Boon Aun from one day to 24 months.

The High Court also upheld the initial fine of RM2.5 million imposed by the Sessions Court on 27 August 2020.

Gan was convicted for furnishing a misleading statement, with intent to deceive, relating to Transmile Group Berhad’s revenue in the company’s Quarterly Report on Unaudited Consolidated Results for the Financial Year ended 31 December 2006. The misleading statement on the revenue amount comprised of over RM333 million of fictitious sales. Gan’s conviction is under Section 122B read together with Section 122(1) of the Securities Industry Act 1983.

The High Court Judge, Justice Mohamed Zaini Bin Mazlan observed that, from the efforts made by the SC to execute the warrant of arrest against Gan, he has been evading arrest, thus failing to attend the hearing of the appeal.

Gan remains at-large and the SC is requesting members of the public who may know of his whereabouts to come forward to assist the SC in locating Gan.
