He was also charged with receiving RM1,500 from the same woman for the same purpose at Merlin Tower, Jalan Meldrum here at 2.40 pm on Jan 9, 2017.

The court allowed him bail of RM14,000 for both charges, with the wife as the surety, and set Sept 14 for mention.

Mohd Yusry was also ordered to report himself at the nearest Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) office every month.

The prosecution was conducted by deputy public prosecutor from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, Yunus Mohamed, while Mohd Yusry was represented by lawyer Mohd Fazaly Ali.
