Man jailed a week for trespassing into home of Najib’s mother

The accused says he cannot recall why he trespassed into Rahah Mohd Noah’s home.

KUALA LUMPUR: A 21-year-old unemployed man was sentenced to one week in prison and fined RM1,500 by the Magistrate’s Court here today for trespassing into the home of Rahah Mohd Noah, mother of former prime minister Najib Razak.

Magistrate Mohamad Aizat Abdul Rahim meted out the sentence on Muhammad Nur Akmal Azisham after he pleaded guilty to committing the offence at Rahah’s residence on Jalan Eaton, off Jalan Tun Razak here, at 9.46pm last Thursday.

The magistrate ordered that the jail sentence run from the date of arrest on Aug 15 and that Nur Akmal be imprisoned a further three months if he failed to pay the fine.

Nur Akmal, who will serve his sentence at the Kajang Prison, was charged under Section 448 of the Penal Code which provides for a maximum sentence of three years in prison or a fine of RM5,000 or both upon conviction.

Asked by Mohamad Aizat why he had trespassed into the house, Nur Akmal said he did not know and could not recall.
