TAWAU: Four persons, including two sisters, aged between 21 and 30, were each fined RM2,500 in default four months’ imprisonment by the Magistrate’s Court here on Tuesday for administering drugs into their body.

Tiffany Cheryll Tony and Trishalynn Limme, together with their companions, Nur Ala Nurin Burhan and Faizul Darman, were slapped with the fine by Magistrate Dzul Elmy Yunus after they pleaded guilty to committing the offence under Section 15(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.

The four accused were also ordered to be placed under the supervision of police and the National Anti-Drugs Agency (NADA) for two years.

A fifth accused, Abdul Saidi Mulpy, was imprisoned three months for the offence and ordered to be referred to the Immigration Department upon completing his jail term.

According to the facts of the case, urine drug screen was conducted on them at the District Narcotics Criminal Investigation Division office between 11.30 am on June 30 and 4.20 pm on July 1, and all tested positive for Ketamine, Methamphetamine and Amphetamine.

All five accused were not represented by defence counsel while ASP Dayang Nur Azarinawaty Awang Kachee prosecuted the case.

They were among 23 persons arrested by police for being involved in a wild party in a rented posh residence in Taman Nordin in June.

On Aug 8, seven from the group were each fined RM2,000 in default four months’ jail and another two foreigners sentenced to four months behind bars for a similar offence. The latter were ordered to be referred to the Immigration Department after their imprisonment.
