Man charged with dishonestly receiving stolen money

A man was charged on Thursday with dishonestly receiving stolen money, transferring and removing it out of jurisdiction.

Rosman Sulaiman, 48, a supervisor in a logistics company, allegedly received a sum of $74,476, having reason to believe to be stolen property, on Dec 19 last year.

Two days later, he allegedly transferred $73,000 which represented the benefits from criminal conduct, to one "Mr Yong''.

The third charge accuses him of remitting $800 to one Olivia Anak Bruce in Malaysia through Western Union Global Network on Dec 28.

Rosman, who was offered bail of $50,000, will appear in court again on May 2.

The maximum penalty for dishonestly receiving stolen property is five years' jail and fine.

If convicted of offences under the Corruption, Drug Trafficking and Other Serious Crimes (Confiscation of Benefits) Act, he can be fined up to $500,000 and/or jailed for up to seven years on each charge.
