Duo to be sentenced for auto theft

THE Magistrate’s Court will hand down sentence on two local men on June 20 after finding them guilty of a charge of vehicle theft, following the conclusion of a trial for the case.

Abdul Azim bin Isham Shah, 23, and Mohammad Faiq bin Haslan, 18, stole a car from the parking lot of Flat Bandaran in Kampong Sinarubai during the wee hours of March 23, last year. Chief Magistrate Pengiran Masni binti Pengiran Haji Bahar found DPP Dr Mohd Hussin bin Ali Idris to have proven the case beyond the court’s reasonable doubt, with 10 witnesses providing evidence in support of the prosecution throughout the trial.

A co-defendant had pleaded guilty to the same charge at the start of the case, was sentenced, and gave evidence during the trial.
