KUALA LUMPUR, July 27 — The Sessions Court here was today told that Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) has taken disciplinary action against two of its senior officers for signing and issuing letters of support to a company belonging to Datuk Peter Anthony in 2014 without the knowledge of the then vice-chancellor Prof Datuk Mohd Harun Abdullah.

Mohd Harun said the disciplinary action was taken against Datuk Abdullah Mohd Said and Prof Shariff Abd Kadir Shariff Omang, as the letters were issued without his knowledge as the then vice-chancellor, to the extent of enabling the company to get the Ministry of Finance’s approval.

The letters were dated June 9, June 10 and July 11, 2014.

“They signed the letters purportedly issued by the university to the Ministry of Finance in support of Asli Jati Engineering Sdn Bhd (belonging to Peter) in connection with the maintenance and services work for mechanical and electrical (ME) systems contract at the university,” he said.

The 10th prosecution witness said this during cross-examination by lawyer Datuk D. Senthinathan representing Peter, who is also the former Sabah Minister of Infrastructure Development cum managing director of Asli Jati Engineering Sdn Bhd, who is facing the charges of using false documents relating to a system maintenance contract.

Mohd Harun, 60, said following the incident, Abdullah, who formerly held the post of UMS Registrar, was transferred to UMS wholly-owned subsidiary, Ulink Property Sdn Bhd, as its chairman in 2015.

“Prof Dr Shariff Abd Kadir Shariff Omang, on the other hand, was asked to resign as UMS deputy vice-chancellor (Academic and International).

“However, I did not lodge a police report on their action as I have sought the advice of UMS legal officer, which saw the disciplinary action taken against them,” the witness said.

Peter, 50, as the managing director of Asli Jati Engineering Sdn Bhd, is charged with forging a letter from the UMS deputy vice chancellor’s office dated June 9, 2014, by inserting a false statement in the title of the letter with the intention of using it to deceive the office of the Principal Private Secretary to the Prime Minister at the Perdana Putra Building in Putrajaya between June 13, 2014, and Aug 21, 2014.

He was also charged on the optional charge over the use of a false document as genuine, namely a letter from the office of the deputy vice-chancellor of UMS dated June 9, 2014, which had a false statement in the title of the letter, and he had reason to believe that the document is false, in the same place and time.

  1. Thannks a llot for the helpful content. It is also my
    opinion that mesothelioma cancer hass an particularly long latency interval, which
    means that the signs of the disease may not emerge tioll 30 to 50 years after the
    first exposure to asbestos. Pleural mesothelioma, that’s the most common sort and has ann effect on the area round the
    lungs, could cause shortness of breath, chest muscles pains, and also a persistent cough,
    which may bring on coughing up blood vessels.
