    Civil servants claim trial in corruption case

    Fadley Faisal

    Two civil servants charged with corruption denied the allegations and claimed trial on Thursday.

    Haji Muhammad Suffian bin Haji Bungsu, 50 who at the time of allegation, was the director of Radio Television Brunei and is now the Deputy Permanent Secretary (Civil Service, Welfare, International and Media) at the Prime Minister’s Office, is purported to have received a luxury car from Jonathan Kho Chew Sen, 45, the former Assistant Chief of News and Current Affairs at RTB. Jonathan Kho is charged with gifting the luxury car as a bribe to Haji Muhammad Suffian to secure a job promotion.

    Chief Magistrate Pengiran Hajah Norismayanti binti Pengiran Haji Ismail adjourned the case to August 6 for trial dates to be fixed.

    Defence counsel Roy Prabhakaran is representing both Haji Muhammad Suffian and Jonathan Kho.

    Deputy Public Prosecutors Hajah Suriana binti Haji Radin and Nurul Fitri binti Kiprawi represented the Public Prosecutor in the case.
