Cheating case: Trial set for October

A local man denied cheating charges against him last Monday in the Intermediate Court.

Judge Radin Safiee bin Radin Mas Basiuni fixed October 8-13 for trial against Zaini bin Haji Mirasan, 56, on 14 charges levelled by Deputy Public Prosecutor Raihan Nabilah binti Haji Ahmad Ghazali, alleging him of cheating a foreign man of just under BND50,000 on numerous occasions and forging documents for the scam.

The defendant allegedly committed the offences with promises to the foreign man of assisting him in applying for permanent resident status between 2012 and 2016.
