Man jailed for threatening 43-year-old disabled brother
Admain was arrested by police on Jan 2 following a report lodged by the complainant who feared for their safety as Admain was known to have a bad temper.
Kota Kinabalu: A 44-year-old unemployed man was jailed 10 months on Friday for threatening his disabled brother last year.

Admain Makling pleaded guilty before Magistrate Stephanie Sherron Abbie to committing the crime to Abdugafar Makling, 43, on Dec 30, 2023 at 11am, at a house in Kg Warisan Kalansanan, Inanam.

Admain, whose case came up for trial, changed his plea to guilty to the charge under Section 506 of the Penal Code.

The charge carries a jail term of up to three years or fine of up to RM5,000 or both, on conviction.

Earlier, the court heard from the prosecution that Admain was seen by his other younger brother to have yelled at Abdugafar by saying that he would kill him and tried to kick him.

Admain was arrested by police on Jan 2 following a report lodged by the complainant who feared for their safety as Admain was known to have a bad temper.

It was not the first time Admain did such thing towards his family members, added the prosecution.

The court ordered Admain to serve the sentence from the date of his arrest.

Meanwhile, a drink seller was charged with stealing two units of cameras from a shop.

Mohd Azlan Shah, 25, pleaded not guilty to stealing the cameras belonging to Chean and Yong Sdn Bhd on April 11, this year, between 9.12pm and 9.13pm, at the Sony Centre premises in Imago Shopping Mall. Stephanie set May 17 for pre-trial case management and released Azlan on a bail of RM2,000 in two sureties.

Earlier, counsel Lim Ming Zoong representing Azlan, applied for a lower bail on the grounds that he is married and the sole breadwinner of his family.

Inspector Suzie S.K. prosecuted.
