KUALA LUMPUR, 13 May 2017:
A Filipino salesman was fined RM2,500 or three months’ jail by the magistrate’s court here yesterday for being in possession of a fake temporary Malaysian identification document.
Magistrate Nurul Nadia Abdul Razak meted out the punishment to Mahdi, 22, after he pleaded guilty to possessing fake temporary identification document bearing the name of Amran Julahid at the Federal Territory National Registration Department, UTC Branch here, at 11.30am on Thursday.
He was charged under Regulation 25 (1) (e) of the National Registration Regulations 1990 (Amended 2007) which carries a maximum fine of RM20,000 or jail term of up to three years or both, upon conviction.
Based on the facts of the case, the accused turned up at the department on the day of the incident to check if his identity card was ready for collection.
Checks made by the staff found there was no application for identification card as claimed by the accused.
Investigations later revealed the accused, from the Philippines, had paid RM5,000 for the temporary identification document bearing the name of Amran Julahid.
The accused had also been using the fake document since April 18 until he was arrested on May 11.
