Ex-Kampar district council employee fined RM20k for falsifying parking ticket receipts


IPOH: A former Kampar district council staff member was fined RM20,000 by a Sessions Court here for falsifying parking ticket receipts, an offence he committed 10 years ago.

Ruddy Nezeri Kamarudin, 38, pleaded guilty to seven out of the 34 charges brought against him by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) under Section 471 of the Penal Code.

Sessions Court judge S. Indera Nehru meted out the sentence in default 14 months' jail on Thursday (Feb 18).

For the remaining 27 charges, Ruddy, who was not represented, was discharged and acquitted under Section 171(A) of the Criminal Procedure Code.

The section of the CPC empowers the courts to account for an existing conviction when considering any outstanding charges against an accused person.

According to the charge sheet, between February and August 2011, Ruddy who was then the finance administration assistant, had cheated by falsifying receipts worth RM27,852 for the purpose of collecting proceeds from the sale of the council’s parking coupons.

According to the facts of the case, Ruddy was entrusted with maintaining the stock of the coupons, providing the sales statement, handling the sale of the coupons, and collecting the proceeds from the sale of the coupons.

He was accused of instructing all premises within his jurisdiction to hand over the proceeds only to him, and would hand over to them receipts that were not genuine.

Ruddy paid the fine.

MACC Deputy Public Prosecutor Nurul Wahida Jalaluddin prosecuted.
