SHAH ALAM: A restaurant helper was charged with trespassing at a hostel and flashing at a woman there.
Muhammad Salihin Zailan, 25, from Sungai Mati in Muar, Johor, pleaded not guilty to the charges under Sections 448 and 509 of the Penal Code respectively.
He was accused of entering a firemanâ€™s unit at the Seksyen 15 Fire and Rescue Department hostels and showing his private parts to a 36-year-old woman who was asleep with her children at 4am last Thursday .
The firemanâ€™s wife said her husband was away training at that time, and the family was staying in the hostel temporarily while their home was undergoing renovations.
Muhammad Salihin, who was not represented, faces a jail term of up to three years, a fine of RM5,000 or both for the first offence; and a maximum of five yearsâ€™ jail, a fine or both for the second offence, upon conviction.
Magistrate Farah Azura Mohd Saad set bail at RM2,500 for the first offence and RM1,500 for the second offence, and fixed May 26 for a re-mention of the case penÂding submission of related documents.
DPP Nurulhuda Ramli prosecuÂted.
Meanwhile in Kuala Lumpur, a jobless man was fined RM5,000 by a Sessions Court here for giving false evidence during a corruption trial two years ago.
Sessions Court judge Mohd Nasir Nordin also instructed K. ManiÂmaran, 26, to be jailed six months, in the event that he failed to pay the fine.
Judge Mohd Nasir meted out the sentence against Manimaran after he admitted to the charge yesterday.
Earlier in seeking for a lenient sentence, Manimaran, who was unrepresented, said that he was jobless and had to look after his mother.
Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission deputy public prosecutor Wan Mohd Bukhari Wan Mohd urged the court to mete out an appropriate sentence to serve as a lesson to others.
Manimaran was charged with giving false and contradictory evidence in the trial conducted at a Sessions Court at the Jalan Duta Courts Complex here on July 9 last year.
Manimaranâ€™s testimony was inconsisÂtent with a statement he had given to the MACC on March 6, 2013.
