Fake IC: Filipina gets 18 months
The charge under Section 25 (1) (e) of the National Regulations 1990 (amended 2007) provides for a jail term of up to three years or fine of up to RM20,000 or both, on conviction.
Kota Kinabalu: The Magistrate’s Court here Thursday sentenced a Filipina to 18 months jail for having a copy of a fake identity card as her identification document.

Dayang Asdah Sahisa pleaded guilty before Magistrate Stephanie Sherron Abbie to having the document bearing the serial number 720318-12-5256 under the name of Rosmawati Bakra at 10am on Oct 6 this year at the Investigation and Enforcement Division, National Registration Department (NRD) here.

The charge under Section 25 (1) (e) of the National Regulations 1990 (amended 2007) provides for a jail term of up to three years or fine of up to RM20,000 or both, on conviction.

NRD prosecuting officer Mohd Naser Mohd Nadzeri informed the court that Dayang was detained while checking her child’s birth register for having the dubious document.

A check on the department’s records on the said document found Dayang’s photo and the photo on the identity card’s record does not tally and Dayang’s thumbprints also did not match.

Naser further informed the court that Dayang claimed to have obtained the fake identity card in year 2000 on the third floor of the Kota Raya complex, Kuala Lumpur and used it to board a flight to Sabah.

Dayang, who has no identification document, also claimed that the fake identity card had been burned and continued to use the copy as her identity document.

Dayang was ordered to serve the sentence from the date of her arrest and ordered to be referred to the Immigration Department thereafter.

In another case, a 24-year-old man was fined RM1,400 or two months jail for rash riding, last year.

Unemployed Azizan Roslie admitted before Magistrate Lovely Natasha Charles to committing the offence of endangering life while driving a Perodua MyVi at Jalan Tun Fuad Stephens here at 11.30pm on April 2, 2022.

The offence under Section 279 of the Penal Code carries a jail term of up to six months jail or fine of up to RM2,000 or both, on conviction.

Duty counsel Carmen Khoo requested leniency as Azizan was remorseful and  it was his first offence.

Traffic prosecuting officer Inspector Mohammad Khairul Nizam Mokhtar prosecuted.
