KUALA LUMPUR: UMNO legal adviser Mohd Hafarizam Harun (pic) has been given a discharge not amounting to acquittal by the Kuala Lumpur High Court Monday (Aug 3) on money-laundering charges involving RM15mil.
However, he will be facing new charges at the Sessions Court later Monday.
Hafarizam was charged on Feb 21,2020, with two counts of money laundering through the depositing of a total of RM15mil from Datuk Seri Najib Razak into his law firm’s bank account.
On the first count, Mohd Hafarizam was alleged to have deposited two cheques amounting to RM11.5mil into the bank account of his legal firm in 2014.
He was also charged with committing a similar offence, by depositing a cheque for RM3.5mil into the same account on Feb 12,2015.
