JOHOR BARU: A public works department (JKR) director was fined RM1.154 mil and sentenced a year in prison after he was found guilty of corruption.
Suspended Putrajaya JKR maintenance division director Datuk Abd Rahim Ahmad, 58, was found guilty for abusing his position as the maintenance facility project director of the Customs, Immigration and Quarantine complex at Bangunan Sultan Iskandar and the JB Sentral building in Bukit Chagar to attain an air conditioning maintenance project for his brother.

Sessions judge Muhamad Jamil Hussein fined him RM1.154mil and jailed him for a year.
He also ordered for an additional jail term of six months if Abdul Rahim failed to settle the fine.
