KUCHING: A local man was sentenced to a fine of RM1,500 in default one month jail by the Magistrate’s Court here today (Nov 15) for threatening to kill his adoptive mother in Batu Kawa, earlier this month.

The 20-year-old accused pleaded guilty to one charge read before Senior Assistant Court Registrar Sandy Yvette Freddy.

He was charged under Section 506 of the Penal Code for intentionally threatening to kill his 80-year-old adoptive mother.

He did the deed at their residence in Batu Kawa around 10am on November 9.

If convicted, he can be punished with imprisonment of up to two years or a fine or both.

According to the facts of the case, during the incident, the accused went on a rampage uttering threatening words such as ‘I want to kill people, I will kill you as well’ in the Iban language.

It is understood that the cause of the incident was due to the complainant asking the accused why the motorcycle he bought had been missing for a while.

The accused stated that the motorcycle had disappeared and acted aggressively by kicking the zinc door of the house.

Worried about her own safety, the complainant came forward to file a police report for further action, leading to the arrest of the accused at their residence on the same day.

The prosecution of the case was handled by Prosecuting Officer Inspector Nur Syafiqa Nyaie Ilin while the accused was not represented by a lawyer.MYTV
