IPOH: A Perak Immigration deputy assistant director was jailed two weeks and fined RM10,000 for making a false transport claim totalling RM700 three years ago.
Sessions Court judge Julie Lack Abdullah ordered Nazly Abdul Rahman to serve an additional three months’ jail if he failed to pay the fine.
Nazly, 46, who was attached to the Teluk Intan Immigration Department branch, made the false claim between March 16 and April 22, 2008, at the state headquarters here.
He was charged under Section 11(c) of the Anti-Corruption Act 1997, which provides for a jail term of up to 20 years, a fine five times the value of the gratification, or RM10,000, whichever is higher, or both.
Julie allowed Nazly a stay of execution on the jail sentence pending an appeal.
Nazly, who was represented by Ahmad Zaidi Zainal, paid the fine.
