The High Court yesterday denied extending bail for a businessman who allegedly bribed a top policeman in 2012.
Liew Say Khoo, Managing Director of a Brunei construction and realty company, claimed trial late last year to the charges of corruption and graft involving former Superintendent Haji Khairur Rijal bin Haji Abu Salim with a vehicle sometime in 2012 in order for him to assist Liew in repeatedly entering and exiting Brunei between 2011 and 2013.
Liew's defence counsel Roy Prabhakaran applied for the bail release of his client and was denied by Justice Dato Paduka Steven Chong after hearing DPP Suriana Radin's reasons for her objection of the application.
DPP Suriana submitted that the defendant poses a flight risk and that his detention secures his presence for the proceedings.
