SEREMBAN: A kuih seller is facing up to 20 years in jail for allegedly using six counterfeit RM100 notes to buy durian. Ridzuan Mat Nor, 35, claimed trial after the charges were read to him before Sessions Court judge G. Ramesh.
For the first charge which he allegedly committed on Aug 3, Ridzuan had allegedly handed over four fake RM100 notes with the serial number BV9901303 to Madzar Abd Aziz, 59, although he knew they were counterfeit.
He allegedly committed the offence along Jalan Lenggeng-Broga in Ulu Beranang around 11.30am. Six days later, Ridzuan had apparently handed over another two RM100 counterfeit notes with the same serial number to Rosli Ahmad, 56.
This second offence was allegedly committed at 9.30am in Jalan Kg Tengah in Lenggeng.
He was charged under Section 489B of the Penal Code, which makes it an offence for a person to use counterfeit notes when knowing that the notes are forged or counterfeit.
Ramesh fixed bail at RM18,000 in one surety for both charges and set Sept 20 for remention.
