A public servant was sentenced to eight months’ imprisonment on August 17, for committing criminal breach of trust.
Deputy Public Prosecutor Dayangku Didi-Nuraza binti Pengiran Haji Abdul Latiff’s facts of the case stated that Norwidyawati binti Haji Mokti, 44, committed the offences between November 2016 and April 2017, while in government service as a civilian administrative clerk posted at the Police Royal Guard of the Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF).
Her duties then included receiving money from RBPF officers and personnel, to be put into the RBPF Welfare and Sports Fund.
However, instead of submitting the collected funds, the defendant pocketed BND17,775 which she spent on personal expenses. She also lent BND1,300 to an RBPF official.
The defendant had made full restitution, as of July 2019.
Judge Muhammed Faisal bin Pehin Dato Haji Kefli presided over the case.
