Tawau man lucky to be only sentenced to charity work for fake police report

TAWAU, 3 Aug 2017: 

A security guard has been ordered to do charity work of three hours daily for three months after he pleaded guilty in the magistrate’s court here yesterday to a charge of making a false police report.

Magistrate Ferhanshah Farene Mohd Ferdaus also set bond without deposit of RM1,000 on Shafik Sauddin, 19 , who was charged under Section 181 of the Penal Code.

Tawau district police  ACP Fadil Marsus said Shafik had made the false police report on July 5 – claiming he was a victim of snatch theft and the incident occurred at about 10.30am in front of  Empire here.

Shafik claimed his personal belongings – including his MyKad, driving licence, ATM card and RM9,500 – were missing when his bag was snatched, Fadil said in a statement.

Following investigation, he said, it was found that Shafik lodged the false report to deceive his family after having used the money – which was meant to be sent to his brother for marriage preparations – for entertainment in Pulau Nunukan.
