KUALA LUMPUR: A former Alcatel Network (M) Sdn Bhd regional customer account leader was jailed two years and fined RM125,000 by a Sessions Court here after she was found guilty of bribing a Telekom Malaysia Bhd assistant manager in 2006.
Sessions Court judge Rozilah Salleh also ordered Radziah Ani, 51, to be jailed eight months if she failed to pay the fine.
Judge Rozilah handed down the decision after the defence failed to establish doubt in its case.
"I find that her defence was a mere denial, inconsistent and unreasonable," she said on Thursday.
Radziah was found guilty of bribing Mohd Asri Idris, 42, in the form of RM25,000 bank cheque dated Feb 15, 2006 as payment to supply information about the tender.
The charge sheet stated that the information was "for the supply of Wideband Code Division Mulitiple Access Mobile Communications System and the Provision of Works Phase II".
She committed the offence at a hotel in Jalan Sultan Ismail between 1pm and 2.30pm on Feb 17, 2006.
However, the court granted a stay of execution for the jail sentence pending appeal in the High Court and the fine was allowed to be paid by March 8.
