  • 2 charges of money laundering

Saddiq’s charges continue with 2 other cases involving money laundering. Saddiq was found transferring an amount of RM50,000 from his bank account to another bank account, and the money was said to have been obtained from illegal activities.

The matter took place in June 2018 in Taman Perling, Johor Bahru. The charge was made in accordance with Section 4(1)(b) of the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing, and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2021.

This Section carries a maximum jail sentence of 15 years.

“I will not give up”

Saddiq’s defense attorney pleaded with the court for a lighter sentence, just in the form of a prison sentence and a fine.

“Syed Saddiq is still unmarried, he’s the youngest among 4 siblings. He has to take care of his parents. His father has just finished a surgery and his mother is battling cancer.”

He also reminded the court of Saddiq’s contribution to the country throughout the years.

In a Facebook post this afternoon (November 9), despite the court’s verdict, Saddiq held back his tears and told media friends that he would not stay silent and would fight for an appeal.

His other defense attorney, Gobind Singh Deo was also present.
