Ex-Malaysia assistant governor pleads not guilty

Former Bank Negara Malaysia assistant governor pleads not guilty to two counts of bribery

A former assistant governor at Bank Negara Malyasia has pleaded not guilty to two charges of bribery.

Bernama, a national Malaysian news agency, on Friday reported that a former assistant governor pleaded not guilty to allegations that he accepted bribes to help procure a contract to print banknotes

The agency named the assistant governor as Mohamad Daud Dol Moin, previously an assistant governor in charge of organisational development at Bank Negara Malaysia. The central bank could not be reached for comment.

On Friday, Bank Negara Malaysia said it did not condone any misconduct by its employees and that it continued to uphold the highest standards of integrity and professionalism in carrying out its roles and functions.

The charges against the assistant governor coincide with related bribery charges to six individuals and two polymer makers in Australia. Securency and Note Printing Australia were on Friday charged by the Australian Federal Police with bribery of foreign public officials. In addition to bribing a Malaysian official, Securency and NPA are alleged to have used international sales agents to bribe foreign public officials in Indonesia and Vietnam to secure banknote contracts.

The allegations first surfaced when Australian media reported that Securency had used bribes and prostitutes to win banknote contracts with other central banks. The information sparked an inquiry by law enforcement agencies in Australia, which was subsequently widened to Malaysia.
