Nine including a woman jailed for illegal entry

13th September, 2017

KOTA KINABALU: Eight men and a woman were jailed between four to five months for illegal entry.

Sessions Court Judge Azreena Aziz handed down the sentence on the immigrants after they pleaded guilty to staying in this country without any valid documents. They were arrested at various locations here recently.

They were charged under Section 6(1)(c) of the Immigration Act 1959/1963, which provides for a fine of up to RM10,000, or a jail term of up to five years, or whipping.

Six of the men were ordered to be whipped.

In a separate case, two men were jailed a total of 12 months by the same court for overstaying.

Alipin Semira has remained in the country after his passport expired more than three years ago while Doyonisius Mau had overstayed here by three months.

They were convicted under Section 15 (1) (c) of the same Act, which is punishable by a jail term of up to five years, or a fine of up to RM10,000, or both.

All the immigrants will be deported after serving their sentences. Inspector Rasydan Jasnin acted for prosecution. – NEDM
