19 February 2020   |   Kuala Lumpur

The Securities Commission Malaysia (SC) charged two individuals today for failing to cooperate with the regulator in its investigation into breaches of securities laws.

Ong Kar Kian, 38, and Amirruddin bin Nin, 50, were charged at the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court this morning under section 32(8)(a) of Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001 (AMLATFPUAA).

The two failed to comply with notices issued by the SC Investigating Officer in 2017 and 2018 requiring them to attend before the said officer for their statements to be recorded.

Ong who was the Group Accountant of Asia Media Group Berhad and Amirruddin who was a named director of several private companies were needed by the SC to assist in an on-going investigation under the Capital Markets and Services Act 2007 and AMLATFPUAA.

Though the SC had objected to bail, the Sessions Court allowed Ong and Amiruddin bail at RM50,000 respectively. They were both required to surrender their passports to the courts and report fortnightly to the SC.

The SC would like to remind members of the public that failure to comply with a written notice issued by an Investigating Officer of the SC under securities laws is a serious offence, which upon conviction, is punishable with a fine not exceeding three million ringgit or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding five years or both.
