Former Tanjung Offshore MD faces fraud charges

Harzani Azmi, former managing director of Tanjung Offshore, has been charged with fraud and money laundering by a local court in Malaysia today.

Harzani could face 15 years’ imprisonment.

The court will seek a joint trial for both charges on March 23.

In Feburary 2015, another two senior officials of Tanjung Offshore, Tan Sri Tan Kean Soon and Muhammad Sabri bin Ab Ghani, were accused by the company for alleged misconduct that may have contributed to the cancellation of Tanjung’s takeover of Bourbon Offshore Asia Pacific.
