KUANTAN: A logging company manager has pleaded guilty to offering a bribe to a forest ranger.

Pee Hong Seng, 40, admitted to offering RM10,000 to forest ranger Dahalan Yusof as inducement for him not to take action against Pee’s employee, who was caught logging illegally.

The offence was committed at 6pm in a hotel room in Jerantut on Oct 22 last year, the court heard.

Sessions Court judge Habibah Mohamed Yusof fined Pee RM20,000 in default of five months’ jail.
