Today’s decision by the court is yet another confirmation that Aker Solutions and its employees have acted in accordance with applicable rules and regulations, and that the allegations levied against individual company representatives; Yusof Ab. Rahman and Hatta Kamaruzzaman, are lacking any merit.
In November 2021, Hatta Kamaruzzaman was granted a Discharged Not Amounting to an Acquittal by the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court for allegations related to the same 2017 Annual Return of one of our local entities. The court then described the charge as groundless and fundamentally defective. In spite of this, the authorities again charged both Hatta Kamaruzzaman and Yusof Ab. Rahman in January and February 2022, based on similar allegations. This last round of accusations has now also been dismissed by the court as groundless, defective and not known in law.
“Aker Solutions and our employees have a long track record of industry operations in Malaysia and for contributing to key energy projects. This long drawn-out process has been a significant burden on valued members of our staff and their families. We have remained firm in our belief that the charges were groundless, and we are very pleased to see that the courts agree”, says Henrik Inadomi, Executive Vice President and General Counsel of Aker Solutions.
