Under arrest: Canadian police have arrested two men and are seeking two others for exporting controlled goods and technologies intended for space satellite use to China in violation of export and defense laws.

TAWAU: The convicted rapist who escaped while being taken to Tawau Prison to serve his 20-year jail sentence was re-arrested in Lahad Datu early Friday morning.

Sabah Police Commissioner Datuk Abdul Rashid Harun said the 36-year-old Mohd Faizal Iman from Kampung Aman Jaya, Tagasan in Semporna, was picked up by a team of policemen from Lahad Datu district headquarters at an oil palm plantation at Division 5, Ladang Tamaco in Lahad Datu around 1.45am.

“Also seized from the convict were a blue Nokia mobile phone and a Celcom Xpax SIM card,” he told reporters here Friday.

He said the case was being investigated under Section 224 of the Penal Code which provides a jail term up to two years or fine or both.

Last Tuesday, Mohd Faizal escaped while being taken to a police lorry in the Tawau Court compound after being sentenced to 20 years’ jail and 20 strokes of the cane for rape.

Abdul Rashid said the police personnel on duty on that day would be investigated to determine whether there was an element of negligence. - Bernama
