GEORGE TOWN

 

 The High Court has fixed Nov 13 for document submission in the case of 27 people, including a Datuk Seri and a Datuk, charged with being members of the infamous Gang 24.

High Court Judicial Commissioner Datuk Ahmad Shahrir Mohd Salleh fixed the date after DPP Lim Cheah Yit told the court yesterday that some of the documents were not ready pending the forensic report and expert’s report.

There was heavy police presence at the entrances, and the exit points at the courtroom were barricaded throughout the proceedings.

Family members who filled the public gallery were asked to vacate the first row to isolate all the accused from the public.

Seated near the dock was 55-year-old businessman Datuk Seri Ng Chian Sia, who was charged on Feb 20 along with 21 others with being members of Gang 24 between Jan 1, 2015, and Jan 29 this year.

The others charged were Tee Swee Chin, 31; Bee Hooi Siang, 44; Eee Ching Hock, 44; Jeremy Cheng Yee Fun, 34; Mah Chee Seng, 46; Yeong Kah Man, 26; Goh Chun Shien, 36; Ng Ah Boey, 45; Yeoh Choon Hin, 37; Teng Kok How, 26;

Lim Leong Huat, 27; Chee Chia Heng, 32; Song Wai Hon, 33; Teoh Jong Yow, 36; Yeoh Choon Hong, 45; Lee Chew Hong, 40; Tan Soo Ching, 36; Teh Hang Beng, 38; Tang Soon Poh, 24; Teoh Chin Yeow, 24; and Teng Kok Loon, 29.

Their case, which was initially transferred to Kuala Lumpur, returned to be heard here along with the case of five other accused who were individually charged with a similar offence on May 29 at the Sessions’ Court here.

The five are Datuk Koh Thiam Hua, 38; Chan Yi Heng, 22; Harry Tan Cheng Yu, 31; Lim Boon Hooi, 40; and Toh Kae Luen, 26.

All the 27 accused face a jail sentence of between five and 20 years if convicted under Section 130V(1) of the Penal Code.
