KUALA LUMPUR (April 13): Three men, including a “datuk”, were charged at the Selayang Sessions Court yesterday for allegedly cheating nine individuals over non-existent payments for land transfers amounting to RM689,181 half a dozen years ago years ago.

Datuk Nor Hasnal Hashmi, 49; Sayyid Walid Hasuana, 31; and Mohd Rozali Rajiei, 48; pleaded not guilty when the charge was read out to them before Judge Rasyihah Ghazali, reported Bernama.

The “datuk” Nor Hasnal faced nine charges, Sayyid Walid faced five charges and Mohd Rozali faced four charges.

Nor Hasnal together with Sayyid Walid allegedly scammed five persons to hand over RM455,512 to Masgenuine Alliance Holdings Sdn Bhd as payment for the supposed land transfer.

Nor Hasnal also faced four charges with Mohd Rozali for committing the same offence on four other victims, persuading them to part with RM689,181 to Darul Hebat Holdings Sdn Bhd as payment for the non-existent land transfer, reported Bernama.

The offences were allegedly committed at Masgenuine Alliance Holding Sdn Bhd and Darul Hebat Holding Sdn Bhd in Bandar Baru Selayang here between Jan 16, 2012, and Nov 6, 2015.

The three were charged under Section 420 of the Penal Code, read together with Section 34 of the same code, which provides a maximum jail sentence of 10 years, whipping and fine.

Bernama reported that deputy public prosecutor Rozana Husin had proposed a bail of RM230,000 for Nor Hasnal, RM130,000 for Sayyid Walid and RM100,000 for Mohd Rozali.

Counsel Datuk Hasnal Rezua Merican and Saleh Ahmad representing the three accused pleaded for the bail to be reduced.

The court later allowed Nor Hasnal a bail of RM72,000, Sayyid Walid RM48,000 and Mohd Rozal RM26,000, with one surety each and set three additional conditions: the trio were to hand over their passports to the court, report to the police station twice a month and not to harass the victims and their families, reported Bernama.
