A man was charged in the Magistrate's Court in Taiping today with two counts of providing financial services for the benefit of a terrorist group.

Ahmad Junaidi Omar, 29, nodded after the charges were read out before Magistrate Sharifah Izura Syed Mashor. However, no plea was recorded.

He was charged with providing financial service by allowing a deposit of RM200 into his Maybank account knowingly that it was for the benefit of a terrorist by the name of  Muhammad Fudhail Omar, 25.

Ahmad Junaidi was alleged to have committed the offence at Kampung Bukit Sungai Nor, Rantau Panjang, near Selama, at about 12.20 pm on June 8, 2015.

On the second count, he was charged with committing a similar offence by allowing a deposit of RM100 into his Maybank account knowingly that it would benefit Muhammad Fudhail at the same location at 4.35  pm on July 2, 2015.

The charges were made under Section 130O(1)(b) of the Penal Code which provides an imprisonment for up to 30 years and is liable to fine, if found guilty.

The court set July 20 for mention.

Deputy public prosecutor Nor Raihan Rithwan prosecuted.

Keep Malaysiakini independent!

Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.

Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.

Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.

Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
