Bangladeshi jailed in Malaysia

The Sessions Court in Malaysia on Thursday sentenced a Bangladeshi shop assistant to a month’s jail and RM17,500 fine for attempting to bribe an assistant enforcement officer of the Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry.

Judge Madihah Harullah handed down the sentence on Muhammad Imran Abdullah, 48, who pleaded guilty to a charge with offering the officer RM3,500 as an inducement that action would not be taken against his wife, who owns a retail shop, for allegedly selling controlled items without a licence.

The offence was committed at the shop at College Height Garden Resort, Pajam, at 1.26 pm last Aug 4.

Deputy public prosecutor from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Nurdiyanah Mohd Nawawi prosecuted.
