SIBU: A former bank teller has been charged with 39 counts of criminal breach of trust involving losses amounting to RM63,300 between Aug 2018 and July this year.

Sarawak CCID chief Supt Maria Rasid said the accused, Andrew Yang Li Yu, 28, pleaded not guilty in the Sessions Court here to the charges under Section 408 of the Penal Code.

The charges were read out by deputy public prosecutor Mohamad Arif Aizuddin Masrom before Judge Caroline Bee Majanil. The accused was not represented.

“The accused was arrested by the Sibu CCID officers on Nov 5. He was later remanded to assist the police in the investigation.

“The offence under Section 408 of the Penal Code is a breach of criminal trust by a clerk or salaried person, which provides for a jail term of not less than a year and not more than 14 years, and whipping, and may also be fined if convicted,” she explained.

Supt Maria noted that the court allowed bail at RM15,000 for the accused with two local sureties.

Apart from that, the court has also set Pre-Trial Case Management (PTCM) to Dec 12.
