Malaysia: MonSpace directors charged again, this time for money laundering


Two female directors of a multi-national investment company, already charged with conducting a direct sales business without a licence, were brought to the Sessions Court here again today and charged with three counts of using the company’s bank accounts as instruments for money laundering.

However, Datuk Seri Lai Chai Shuang, 49, and Chai Ling Mooi, 48, pleaded not guilty after the charges were read out before judge Zamri Bakar.

On all three charges, the two women were alleged to have used the bank accounts belonging to MonSpace (M) Sdn Bhd as instruments for money laundering of proceeds from unlawful activities.
