AMPANG – A former bank manager claimed trial at the Ampang magistrates’ court for cheating three people including two senior citizens, a sum totalling RM520,000 in a fixed deposit investment scheme, last year.
Ng Yee Lin, 33, was charged with deceiving Yong Loo Kim, 49, Seah Seong Yew, 76, and Soon Thiam Yew, 70, to invest in the scheme.
She allegedly committed the offence at Hong Leong Bank, Taman Putra Ampang between Aug 16 and Dec 19, 2016.
The offence falls under Section 420 of the Penal Code, which carries a maximum 10 years’ imprisonment, fine, or both, upon conviction.
Deputy Public Prosecutor Norhashimah Hashim asked the court to impose a RM60,000 bail with one surety for all charges.
While Ng’s counsel Edwin Navis, pleaded for a minimum bail, saying his client is the sole breadwinner from her family and is currently jobless.
Magistrate Haslinda A Raof then set bail at RM24,000 with one surety and fixed July 21 for mention.
