KUALA LUMPUR: Businessman Datuk Shamsubahrin Ismail was charged Friday with two counts of cheating National Feedlot CorporationChairman (NFC) Datuk Seri Mohamad Salleh Ismail.

He is said to have induced Dr Salleh to agree to pay for his service at a restaurant in Bukit Tunku at 6pm on Nov 20 and duping him.
Sessions Court Judge Ahmad Zamzani Mohd Zain set his bail at RM300,000 in one surety and ordered him to surrender his passport to the court.
The judge set jan 21 for mention.
Shamsubahrin was detained on Dec 21 when he allegedly tried to bribe several commercial crimes investigations department (CCID) officers probing the NFC issue with about RM1.7mil to avoid arrest.
His was kept in remand until he was produced in court Friday.
NFC became mired in controversy when the Auditor General's report in October said the company was in a mess and had failed to meet its cattle production target.
NFC had been given a RM250mil loan by the government to turn the local cattle industry into a large-scale business with the long term of helping Malaysia become self sufficient in producing beef.
MACC is investigating the company and also probing to see if Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil, who is the wife of Dr Mohamad Salleh, had any part in the awarding of the RM250mil loan to NFC.
