High Court upholds former CCID director’s acquittal

(The Star) – The High Court has upheld the acquittal of former Commercial Crimes Investigation Department director Datuk Ramli Yusuff of a charge of being involved in business while he was a civil servant.

High Court judge Justice Mohamad Zabidin Mohd Diah said he did not find any reason to disturb the detailed findings of a Sessions Court over the acquittal.

Ramli was accused of being involved in business by being the director of an agriculture-based company Kinsajaya Sdn Bhd while he was still a police commissioner and CCID director at Bukit Aman, on May 2, 2006.

Sessions judge S.M. Komathy Suppiah acquitted Ramli of the charge in August last year.

In another High Court on Friday, Justice Ghazali Cha upheld Ramli’s acquittal on three charges of not disclosing information about his assets and shares.
