Kota Kinabalu: A local was jailed two years and ordered given two whippings by the Magistrate’s Court, here, Monday for having 6.63gm of syabu.

Muhamid Samad pleaded guilty before Magistrate Stephanie Sherron Abbie to having the drugs on April 9, at a parking in Jalan Ikan Emas 1, Sadong Jaya, here.

The court ordered Muhamid to serve his sentence from date of arrest and to run concurrently with his Section 15 (1)(a) conviction.

Muhamid was charged under Section 12 (2) of the Dangerous Drugs Act, punishable under Section 39A(1) of the same Act, which carries a maximum jail of five years and whipping, on conviction.

In the same court, a 32-year-old local contractor was charged with cheating a woman of RM3,250.

Nurazli Sudin pleaded not guilty to cheating a woman over the installation of home lighting, at 11.30am at Feb 26, 2019 at a premises in Tanjung Aru.

However, the complainant who was present in court, informed the court that she wished to withdraw the police report against Nurazli saying that the accused already paid RM2,500 and will pay the remaining balance of RM750.

Inspector Suzie @ Stephanie Kupit, prosecuting, applied for another date pending an instruction from the Deputy Public Prosecutor’s office.

The court set June 26 for mention of the case and extended Nurazli’s bail.

Nurazli was charged under Section 420 of the Penal Code which provides for a jail term of between one and 10 years, and whipping and fine, on conviction.
