KOTA KINABALU: A lorry driver was jailed for two days and fined RM10,000 for offering RM150 to a traffic policeman after he was found to be driving without a license.

Mohammad Asraffi, 21, pleaded guilty before Judge Jason Juga at the Special Corruptions Court here, on Tuesday (May 7).

He was instructed to serve the jail term from the date of sentencing and to pay the fine, in default a three-month imprisonment.

He failed to pay the fine.

According to the charge sheet, Mohammad had made the bribe offer at around 9.30pm on April 23, by a roadside in the city.
