PUTRAJAYA: A Road Transport Department (RTD) officer was today charged with breaking into the office of his superior two months ago.
Syed Abdul Rahman Perman, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge when produced before magistrate Ainna Sherina Saipolamin.
The 35-year-old allegedly committed the offence at the transport ministry’s premises here at 1am on July 13.
If found guilty, he could face jail time of up to six months, a maximum RM2,000 fine, or both.
Sherina imposed a RM3,000 bail in one surety.
She then fixed the case for mention on Oct 11.
Syed Abdul Rahman, who is now under suspension, was represented by lawyer S Mogan while deputy public prosecutor Muhammad Izzat Fauzan prosecuted.
It was earlier reported that three RTD officers were detained for allegedly breaking into the office of then director-general Nadzri Siron.
Nadzri has since been transferred to the human resources ministry.
Kuala Lumpur CID chief Senior Asst Comm Rusdi Mohd Isa said the three were detained soon after a police report was lodged.
Rusdi said at the time that it had not been ascertained whether anything was stolen from Nadzri’s office.
