BY Fadley Faisal

A local man who allegedly scammed a foreign man off BND50,000 asked for more time in the Intermediate Court on Wednesday to consider the charges he is facing.

Judge Radin Safiee bin Radin Mas Basiuni adjourned the case to July 6.

The 14 charges levelled by Deputy Public Prosecutor Raihan Nabilah binti Haji Ahmad Ghazali against Zaini bin Haji Mirasan, 56, allege him of cheating a foreign man of just under BND50,000 on numerous occasions in return for promises to assist the foreign man in applying for permanent resident status between 2012 and 2016.

The defendant is also alleged to have forged documents for the scam.
