Guilty: Mohamad Hanafiah shying away from cameras at the Sessions Court in Johor Baru.
JOHOR BARU: A 48-year-old former chief executive officer of Medini Iskandar Malaysia Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary company of Iskandar Investment Bhd (IIB), has pleaded guilty at a Sessions Court here to accepting a bribe of RM25,000.
Mohamad Hanafiah Abu Mansor, who is currently JP Logistics Sdn Bhd CEO, was slapped with a RM30,000 fine for asking and receiving the bribe at a car park behind IIB in Danga Bay between 3pm and 4pm on January 2010.
He took the bribe from Mohd Zulkifli Arif as a reward for helping Segi Mulia Sdn Bhd to procure the tender for a project under Medini Iskandar Malaysia.
The facts of the case stated that in early 2009, Medini Iskandar Malaysia opened tender for “The Proposed Construction And Completion of Kg Sg Pendas – Alternative Villager’s Logistic Road For Medini Development Iskandar Malaysia” project worth RM2.7mil.
Segi Mulia Sdn Bhd secured the project on July 29, 2009.
Mohamad Hanafiah was previously charged on Oct 24 last year with two counts of bribery offences involving the same project, where he pleaded not guilty.
He was offered an alternative charge yesterday under Section 165 of the Penal Code, which provides for a jail term up to two years or a fine or both upon conviction. He pleaded guilty.
In mitigation, Mohamad Hanafiah pleaded for a fine instead of a jail sentence as it was his first offence and he had a wife and four children to take care of.
He paid the fine.
