JOHOR BAHARU, July 13 (Bernama) -- A former civil finance administrative
assistant was sentenced to six years imprisonment by the Sessions Court here
today, for each of the 20 counts of criminal breach of trust (CBT) amounting to
RM11,615 he committed two years ago.
Judge Zamri Bakar ordered Abdul Samat Ahamad, 51, to serve the sentences
concurrently from the date of his arrest yesterday, after he pleaded guilty to
Abdul Samat was charged under the Penal Code for CBT involving government
revenue for the sum of RM11,615 at the Jalan Abdul Samad Dental Clinic here,
between Jan 28 and March 25, 2010.
The judge however spared him from being caned, due to his age.
Deputy Public Prosecutor Dzul Iswari Mohd Jaafar had earlier applied for a
sentence befitting the offence as it involved government revenue and a matter of
Abdul Samat was unrepresented.
