The Malaysian Court Finds the Charge Against Aker Solutions’ Manager Groundless

In June 2021, Ahmad Hatta Kamaruzzaman of Aker Solutions in Malaysia was charged by the police. Neither he nor the company received the required details of the charge.

On November 25, 2021, the sessions court in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, discharged Ahmad Hatta Kamaruzzaman of the offence. The Court found that the charge was vague, misleading and did not state the particulars of the offence and thus did not fulfil the provisions under the Penal Code. The Court further found the charge to be groundless and fundamentally defective.

"Our colleague Hatta Kamaruzzaman and Aker Solutions have objected to the charge from the start, and we are pleased to see that the court has concluded the same way. The last few months have been very challenging for Hatta and his family, and we are glad that this ordeal can now be put behind them," said Anders Hannevik, executive vice president and head of customers and strategy at Aker Solutions.
