KOTA KINABALU: A 65-year-old businessman was fined a total of RM206,0000 for three charges of illegally having meats and other body parts of banteng, large flying fox, and Sambar deer which are protected animals.

Sessions Court Judge Elsie Primus handed the sentence to Chung En Kin  whose case was brought up for sentencing on Friday.

The court however granted Chung's application to stay the execution of the sentence pending appeal to the High Court.

On Apr 27 this year, Chung was found guilty of the three charges against him.

Pending the appeal, the court ordered Chung to  pay an additional bail of RM20,000.
