KUALA LUMPUR: A Sessions Court here sentenced an insurance agent to 11 years in jail and ordered him to be caned six times for two counts of cheating his friend’s mother by inducing her to pay RM800,000 in insurance premium two years ago.
Sessions judge Mat Ghani Abdullah sentenced Tee Wei Chiang to five years’ jail and instructed him to be whipped three times for duping Wong Kok Fong into believing he could help her buy an insurance policy and that he had dishonestly induced the housewife to deposit the alleged insurance premium payment of RM400,000 into his account.
He also sentenced him to six years’ jail and ordered him to be caned three times for the second count of cheating Wong, 59, by telling her that he could help her buy two insurance policies for her daughters Low Lucille, 24, and Low Louise, 27, and had asked her to pay RM400,000.
Judge Mat Ghani also fined Tee RM50,000 for each charge and if he failed to pay the fines, he would be jailed for 10 months each. He ordered the sentences to run concurrently from yesterday.
Tee committed the offences at Ambank in Taman Setapak Indah Jaya off Jalan Genting Kelang and Taman Kepong here on Feb 22 and April 16, 2012.
