3 cops charged with stealing RM85,000 during KL raid

PETALING JAYA: Three policemen from the General Operations Force were charged in the Kuala Lumpur magistrates’ court today with stealing RM85,000 from a business premise during a multi-agency raid last week.

Adib Zafri, 35, Amirul Aiman Mamat, 26, and Hafiz Irsyad Nawi, 30, pleaded not guilty after the charge was read to them before magistrate Aina Azahra Arifin, Bernama reported.

They were among those taking part in a massive operation against undocumented migrants off Jalan Silang in Kuala Lumpur, which saw more than 1,100 foreigners detained.

The trio were charged with the common intent of stealing money belonging to NGWE Gabar Sdn Bhd at Jalan Lebuh Pudu at 2.27pm on Dec 21.

They were charged under Section 380 of the Penal Code, which carries a maximum 10-year jail term and a fine upon conviction.

Deputy public prosecutor Izzat Amir Idham did not propose bail as he said the alleged offence was carried out by public servants while performing their duties.

“This matter also raises concerns about the integrity and responsibility of security personnel while performing their duties,” he said.

Lawyer Adi Zulkarnain Zulkafli, representing Adib and Hafiz, requested that their clients be granted a low bail amount as they earn RM2,100 a month and are supporting their families.

Lawyer Khairunnisa Azzahrah Ghazalie, representing Amirul, also requested a low bail amount for her client as he is supporting his elderly parents on a monthly income of RM2,100.

Aina Azahra allowed bail of RM17,000 in two local sureties for each of the accused and set Feb 6 as the next hearing date.

She also ordered the accused to surrender their passports to the court and to report to the nearest police station once a month pending the disposal of the case.

Reports said the three policemen were recorded on closed-circuit television (CCTV) conducting a search at the business premise.
