Sergeant to know fate on March 23

13th February, 2018

KOTA KINABALU: A 56-year-old police sergeant who faced three charges of receiving a total of RM1,600 from 12 people, in relation to a case he was investigating, will know his fate on March 23.

Sessions Court judge Nixon Kennedy Kumbong set the date on Sgt Abdul Makel A. Bakar after hearing his defence yesterday.

The court has ruled that the prosecution had succeeded in raising prima facie case against the accused. Abdul Malek then elected to testify in sworn statement where he is defended by counsel Ram Singh Harbans.

The accused allegedly received the money without consideration through the individuals whom he knew are likely to be concerned with his official function when he was the investigation officer of a case involving the Corrosive, Explosive and Dangerous Weapons Act 1958.

On the first count, Abd Malek is accused of accepting a bribe of RM300 from one J.S Jollvin Boby Santong, a surety to one Van Brawin Santong who was arrested by police on Nov 6, 2015 and investigated under Section 6(1) of the Corrosive, Explosive Substances and Offensive Weapons Act 1958.

On the second count, he allegedly received another RM300 from one Dinah Gilong who was a surety to one Dio Romeo Liddoe who was also arrested and investigated under the same Act.

On the third count, Abd Malek allegedly accepted RM1,000 from Timothy Boriul, Riddius Mahau, Darddy Los, Lasrus @ Lazarus Sundaling, Nicholson Rayner A. Albert, Iverene Sungkoling, James Lee, Elsuaro K.D Somboton, Murhan Ambiki and Tommy Yutibing who were arrested and investigated under the same Act.

The incident took place at the Manggatal police station and City Police Headquarters area on Nov 10 and 11, 2015. The offence framed under Section 165 of the Penal Code carries a jail term of up to two years, or fine, or both, on conviction.

Prosecuting Officer Rustam Sanip from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission appeared for the prosecution. – NEDM
