Retired cop fined for accepting bribes

KOTA KINABALU: A retired policeman pleaded guilty to charges of accepting bribes at the Kota Kinabalu Special Corruption Court.

The accused, Jangli Mamat, 58, was fined RM3,000 by judge Abu Bakar Manat.

Jangli, formerly with the Narcotics Department of the Kota Belud police, was charged with accepting a total of RM650 from a man between Oct 6, 2016 and March 3, 2017.

The accused was charged under Section 165 of the Penal Code, which carries a jail term of up to two years, a fine or both. Two other alternative charges were dropped by the prosecution after the accused pleaded guilty to the first charge.

Separately, at the same court, a police inspector and a corporal, also with the Kota Belud police, were charged with accepting bribes.

Both accused, however, pleaded not guilty to accepting bribes involving RM4,400.

The first accused, Bobby Rhyne Warry Nawari, 38, was charged with eight counts of accepting RM3,800 in bribes between May 1 and Aug 30, 2017.

He was granted a RM10,000 bail with a deposit of RM5,000 in one surety and ordered to surrender his passport.

The second accused, Jameswell Anak Lakin, 44, faced three charges for accepting bribes totalling RM600.
