JPJ officer, subordinate claim trial to graft charge

Postby admin » Mon Dec 10, 2012 6:09 am

BUTTERWORTH: A Road Transport Department (JPJ) assistant enforcement officer and his subordinate claimed trial in a Sessions Court here Monday to a graft charge of RM300.

V. Chandrasegeran, 42, from the Penang JPJ office, was alleged to have accepted RM300 from M. Murugan through JPJ enforcement assistant Farid Abdullah as an inducement not to take action against him for driving a lorry bearing the plate DX 7561 with worn-out tyres.

He was said to have committed the offence on Sept 14 at around 8pm in Lorong Perusahaan 10, Prai Industrial Estate in Prai.

He was charged under Section 17(a) of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Act 2009 (Act 694) that is read together with Section 28 of the same act.

The offence, which is punishable under Section 24 of the same act, carries a jail term of not more 20 years and fine not less than five times the graft amount or RM10,000, whichever is higher.

Chandrasegeran's lawyer, A. Chandrasegaran, sought to reduce bail saying that his client was married with two children and had elderly parents to take care of.

Sessions judge Meor Sulaiman Ahmad Tarmizi reduced the bail amount from RM10,000 to RM6,000 with one surety.

Farid Abdullah, 27, who was unrepresented, was earlier charged in a different court for abetting in the same case.

Sessions judge Nabisha Ibrahim reduced bail from RM10,000 to RM6,000 for Farid after recording his plea.

MACC DPP Mohd Firdaus Sek-man later sought for both cases to be jointly heard in judge Meor Sulaiman's court.
