JOHOR BARU: A Vietnamese national has been jailed for two months for offering a RM300 bribe to a policeman as an inducement to not take action against his countryman.
Waiter Nguyen Van Phong, 29, admitted that he offered the money to Kpl Mazrolhisham Maidin of the Seri Alam district police headquarters motor patrol unit at around 1.45am on April 15, 2014, at Jalan Dedap 6, Taman Johor Jaya, here.
On that day, Kpl Mazrolhisham was patrolling the housing estate when he spotted Van Pong’s friend Nguyen Van Giang, 24, behaving suspiciously.
When requested, Van Giang failed to produce a valid travel document. Van Phong, who saw Van Giang being questioned, went to his friend’s aid.
Van Phong proceeded to offer RM300 to Kpl Mazrolhisham as an inducement not to take action.
He was charged under Section 214 of the Penal Code, which provides for a jail term of not more than 15 months or a fine of not more than RM10,000 or both.
Judge Mohamad Haidar Abdul Aziz fined Van Phong RM5,000, but the accused requested to be jailed because he did not have the money.
Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission prosecuting officer Norfazlin Hamdan prosecuted.
