Posted on February 8, 2011, Tuesday
KOTA KINABALU: The Sessions Court here will decide on Feb 11, this year, whether to order a man and two women to enter their defence on separate charges of corruption in relation to welfare payment for the dead.
Judge Caroline Bee Majanil yesterday deferred her ruling on Rasiah @ Thomy Sumbat, 52, Rosminie Borilok, 46, and Masni @ Masnah Sairin, 57, the staff of Welfare Department Office in Tuaran when they allegedly committed the offences, after receiving submission from Masni’s counsel Hj Ansari Abdullah.
Community development assistant Rasiah and administration assistant Rosminie are joint jointly charged with five counts of falsifying documents by certifying the payments of welfare assistance from January to February,
May to June, July to August, September to October and November to December, 2005, respectively for Dayang Ismail when in fact the latter already died on
Dec 16, 2003.
Meanwhile, clerk Masni is accused of abetting Rasiah and Rosminie in committing the alleged offences by putting her thumb-print on the column for the name of Dayang Ismail.
Rasiah and Rosminie also face an additional charge of certifying the payment of welfare assistance from March to April, 2006, to another person, Andah Jair who died on Feb 17, 2006.
The trio allegedly committed the offence between Feb 14, 2005
and June 2, 2006 at the Tuaran District Welfare Office.
All the accused claimed trial on Oct 23, 2008, and are currently released on bail pending the disposal of the case.
Counsel PJ Perira, Hibin Masalin and Ansari acted for Rosminie, Rasiah and Masni respectively.
