Health attendant claims trial to forging 19 MyKads


KUALA LUMPUR: A health attendant at University Malaya Medical Centre pleaded not guilty in the Sessions Court here today to two counts of forging 19 copies of identity cards to apply for the Telekom Malaysia (TM) internet service.

Nor Azuanis Mohamed Zawi, 30, was charged with forging the copies of the identity cards belonging to 19 individuals between June and July 2015 here.

The charge, under section 465 of the Penal Code, provides imprisonment of up to two years, or fine, or both, if found guilty.

Deputy public prosecutor from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, Siti Syakimah Ibrahim, who prosecuted, proposed bail at RM15,000 in one surety for both charges.

However, Nor Azuanis, who has two children and was represented by lawyer V Sri Kumar, requested for a lower bail as he earned only RM1,400 a month and was the sole breadwinner for the family.

Judge Azura Alwi set bail at RM5,000 in one surety for both charges and fixed May 17 for mention.
