Ex-company director on RM1 million CBT charges
KUALA LUMPUR, July 3 — A former executive director of a construction company pleaded not guilty at the Sessions Court here today to two counts of criminal breach of trust involving more than RM1 million.
Hashmizar Hakimi, 49, previously employed by Sturgeon & Caviar Inc (M) Sdn Bhd, is accused of committing the offences with an Austrian citizen, Manfred Straka, who is still at large.
He allegedly approved a payment totalling RM785,000, involving four cheques dated between August 15, 2008 and September 17, 2009, to Akuatik Niaga Sdn Bhd without prior approval from other members of the Sturgeon & Caviar Inc board of directors.

Both offences were allegedly committed at Jalan SetiaBakti 2, Plaza Damansara, Bukit Damansara here.
Judge Mohamad Zulkifly Jusoh set Sept 3 for re-mention and allowed Hashmizar RM100,000 bail in one surety.
The accused’s passport was impounded by the court and he is to report to the nearest police station every first week of the month until disposal of his case. — Bernama
