JOHOR BARU – A director of a furniture company, Datuk Teo Wee Cheng, pleaded not guilty in the sessions court here today to nine charges of soliciting and accepting bribes amounting to RM12.87 million in connection with the Jana Wibawa project.

On two of the charges, Teo, 65, of SSH Furniture Sdn Bhd, was alleged to have solicited RM11.37 million, which is 10% of the tender price for the project to upgrade the bypass from Jalan Sawah Baru to Tenang Stesyen, Segamat, worth RM39.75 million, and a road construction project from Kg Belukar Durian to Persimpangan Felda Waha, Sedili, Kota Tinggi, worth RM74 million.

The money was alleged to be a reward for helping Muar Usaha Bakti Sdn Bhd secure the project and as inducement to agree to the appointment of TS Dynamic Construction Sdn Bhd as a subcontractor for the project.

He was charged with committing the offences at the office of Trimetro Development Sdn Bhd, Jalan Majidi, Muar, between July 2021 and June last year.
