Trader jailed and fined RM1mil for bribing cop
SHAH ALAM: A businessman was sentenced to six years in jail and fined RM1mil by the Sessions Court here after being found guilty of bribing a police officer two years ago.
In his ruling against Wan Muhammad Azlan Mahamod, judge Asmadi Hussin said the defence had failed to raise reasonable doubt.
The fine is in default of six years’ jail.
The judge also sentenced Wan Muhammad Azlan’s uncle, Mohd Kamal Zin, 41, to five years in jail and fined him RM500,000 in default two years’ jail for abetting his nephew.
Wan Muhammad Azlan, 24, was earlier charged with offering a RM100,000 bribe to Insp V. Mohana Sundaram from the Subang Jaya Narcotic Crime Investigation Division as an inducement not to hand him over to the Kelantan police to be investigated for drugs.
The offence was committed at the Narcotic Crime Investigation Division of the Subang Jaya Police, Bukit Puchong police station, at about 7.30pm on Sept 27, 2010.
He was also charged with offering the bribe to Mohana Sundaram through Mohd Kamal for the same purpose at the same place about 1.45pm on Sept 28, 2010.
Judge Asmadi allowed a stay on the sentence pending an appeal but rejected their application to delay the payment of the fine.
He also the increased bail for Wan Muhammad Azlan from RM60,000 to RM80,000 and Mohd Kamal, from RM30,000 to RM40,000.
Both of them were also ordered to report themselves at the Kota Baru office of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission on the first Sunday of every month. — Bernama
