The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

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
