Headmaster claims trial to misappropriating school fund

Date:

KUCHING: A school headmaster claimed trial to criminal breach of trust (CBT) for allegedly misappropriating special needs student (EMK) allowances amounting to RM4,500 in the Sessions Court here on Friday.

Madahan Busman, 48, pleaded not guilty to the charges framed against him under Section 409 of the Penal Code.

Madahan, who is the headmaster of Sekolah Kebangsaan Beradek in Padawan, had been entrusted with RM4,500 cash money allocated for the EMK allowance but had allegedly failed to distribute the money to the students between Jan 2019 and Dec 2019.
