KOTA KINABALU: A 48-year-old from Selangor was jailed a day and fined RM200 for two counts of fraudulently having RM1,340 in his bank accounts, four years ago.

Mat Kasa Jamaludin pleaded guilty before magistrate Mohamad Aizat Abdul Rahim. He was jailed one day and fined RM100 or one week’s jail for having RM670 in his CIMB bank account at 8.42pm on Oct 9, 2015.

On the second count, Mat Kasa was fined another RM100 or one week’s jail for having another RM670 in his Maybank account at 8.03pm on Oct 11, 2015.

Prosecuting officer Inspector Albert Basiri told the court that the complainant visited an online business website and was keen to purchase a camera and remote control worth RM1,340.

The complainant transferred the money into two bank accounts but never received the products. 

Investigations revealed that Mat Kasa admitted that the two bank accounts belonged to him but claimed that his wife’s relative, Sally, was using it.

He said the purpose of giving the bank account numbers to Sally was to make it easy for him to send money to her, adding that he met Sally only once.

Mat Kasa, who was unrepresented, requested for a fine, saying that he came to the State for the case and would return back once it is settled as his seven children were waiting for him.

He said he regretted his act.

Each charge under Section 22A (1) of the Minor Offences Ordinance provides for a fine of up to RM100 or up to three months jail or both, upon conviction.

In another case, the court deferred to March 25 the sentencing of a man who pleaded guilty to having items which he failed to explain how he obtained them.

The court set the date for Mohd Syawal Justin Abdullah as it needed to go through the pictures of the exhibits.

Syawal admitted to having a knife, a crowbar a spanner and an allen key on Jan 17 in a house here.
