RM60,000 CBT: Ex-sales supervisor gets three years

9th August, 2018

KOTA KINABALU: A local woman was put behind bars for three years for criminal breach of trust (CBT) involving over RM60,000.

Sessions Court Judge Noor Hafizah Mohd Salim handed down the sentence on Valarie Toh Yuk Kin, who is the former sales supervisor of Life Water Marketing (LWM) Sdn Bhd , after she pleaded guilty to all three charges read to her yesterday.

On the first count, Valarie was jailed a year for pocketing RM52,523.35 of her company’s sales revenue at 33 Mini Market, Taman Indah Permai, Kuala Menggatal Bay between August 14, 2017 to December 2, 2017.

She received a similar sentence for her second count for misusing RM9,926.35 at Pakhtun Baba Enterprise KK Times Square between August 2,2017 and February 20, 2018.

For her third count she was given another year’s jail for embezzling RM508.80 at Kedai Runcit Kampung Sondouou on March 8.

All the offence framed under Section 408 of the Penal Code carries a maximum jail term of 14 years with caning and a fine.

According to Deputy Public Prosecutor Dinesh Raja, in December 2017 the Debtor Control Supervisor of the LWM Company audited, and found that Valarie had been entrusted to make a collection of money from 10 customers.

However the collection was not submitted to the company. Thus the company issued a first warning letter to the accused and ordered her to repay the money back by way of salary deductions for which she had agreed.

In April 2018, the complainant once again made the audit and found that Valarie was still using the company’s money. The company ordered Valarie to resign as well as to return the money to the company but she failed.

In seeking for leniency the unrepresented accused told the court that she is suffering from high blood pressure and diabetes. Apart from that she is also taking care or her sibling.

The court however ordered the accused to run the jail term consecutively from her date of arrest on August 1. In an unrelated case, four persons were made poorer by RM5,900 for drunk driving.

Haryani Prijo was fined RM1,800 followed by Audreana Leopold RM1,600, Loo Chee Khim RM1,500 and Gaylden Chresler RM1,000 as they admitted separately to committing the offence during the wee hours here.

The court ordered the accused persons to be jailed for a week if they failed to pay the fine. This case was brought before Magistrate Stephanie Sherron Abbie. – NEDM
