SANDAKAN: An Indonesian illegal immigrant who tried to flee captivity by jumping into the sea at the port area here on Christmas Eve was jailed six months by the Sessions Court. 

Court judge Ismail Brahim also ordered Mohd Daud Denin Ismail, 27, to be given one stroke of the rotan. 

Prosecuting Officer Asst Supt Choo Peng Yeong told the court that Mohd Daud was with policemen who were overseeing the deportation of 239 Filipino illegal immigrants from the Sandakan port in Karamunting at 7pm that day. 

ASP Choo said that after the detainees were handed over to Immigration Department officials, Mohd Daud and another illegal immigrant dived into the sea in a bid to escape. 

The police personnel managed to nab Mohd Daud while search efforts for the other illegal immigrant continued. 

Mohd Daud was arrested in Lahad Datu on Dec 3.
