Review sought in Lamborghini case
KUALA LUMPUR: A biscuit factory chief executive officer who was charged with breaching a Customs order by taking his Langkawi-registered Lamborghini car away from the island beyond the stipulated period, wants the prosecution to review the charge against him.
Lawyer Leong Pak Yiew, representing Soo Chung Yee, 37, told the court the defence would send a representation to the Attorney-General’s Chambers.
The case was fixed for mention before magistrate Nur’Aminahtul Mardiah Md yesterday. The court set Nov 30 for mention.
Soo was charged last Sept 8 with violating a condition in item 21A of the Customs Duty (Exemption) Order 1988 by failing to produce the Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder My12 car, with registration LD6666, back to the Customs officer in Langkawi on Oct 3, 2012.
Soo is alleged to have taken the car out of the island for more than the permitted period, which is 30 days for a single trip. – Bernama
