SFI Sdn Bhd to face court again

17th June, 2017

KOTA KINABALU: A local company is once again hauled to the court for another environmental violation. This time, Sabah Forest Industries (SFI) Sdn Bhd is accused of violating Section 27(1) of the Environmental Quality Act 1974 by releasing fuel waste into the sea.

Sabah Forest Industries Sdn Bhd which was represented by its senior instrument manager, Michael Wong, denied releasing the oil which overflows from the MFO Shore Tank to the Brunei Sea Bay at 9.40am on Aug 10, 2015.

The offence is punishable under Section 27(2) of the same Act, which carries a fine not exceeding RM500,000, or a jail term of up to a year, or both, on conviction.

Sessions Court Judge Ainul Shahrin Mohamad fixed July 13 for pre-trial case management and ordered SFI to be tried on Nov 8-9.

Prosecuting officer Awang Hashim from the Department of Environment acted for the prosecution while SFI is defended by counsel Edward Paul.

Between December 2015 and September 2016, the company also faced a slew of charges of releasing effluent into the watercourse and violating the Occupational Safety and Health and the Factories and Machinery Acts.

Meanwhile, a 45-year-old man will on July 21 know whether he has a case to answer on a charge of raping his 12-year-old daughter.

Sessions Court Judge Noor Hafizah Modh Salim set the date for the man when the prosecution closed its case after calling nine witnesses.

The man is accused of committing incest at the Telipok settlement scheme between Nov 23, at 6pm and Nov 24, at 6am last year.

The offence framed under Section 376(3) of the Penal Code, carries a jail term of between eight years and 30 years, and whipping, upon conviction.

The court also set July 12 for oral submission. Deputy public prosecutor Dinesh Raja conducted the prosecution while the man was unrepresented. – NEDM
