Woman Sentenced for Fraud

SIBU: In a significant legal development, the Magistrate’s Court in Sibu has sentenced Suhana Abdullah, aged 39, to four years in prison after she pleaded guilty to 40 charges of fraud. The charges collectively involved losses amounting to RM1.011 million.

Details of the Case

Magistrate Oon Kork Chern presided over the case, initially imposing a one-year prison sentence for each charge. However, a distinction was made in the sentencing, with Suhana ordered to serve the prison term for the first three charges separately. For the remaining 37 charges, she was directed to serve the sentence concurrently.

Legal Framework

Suhana Abdullah was charged under Section 420 of the Penal Code, which stipulates a prison term ranging from one to ten years, along with the possibility of whipping and fines.

Fraudulent Activities

The charges against Suhana revolve around defrauding 37 victims with non-existent low-cost housing offers between 2019 and 2022, spanning various locations.

Legal Proceedings

Deputy Public Prosecutor Mohamad Amirul Hakim Mohamad Zamri represented the prosecution, while the accused was defended by Reena Chong.

Modus Operandi

Victims were reportedly given receipts and, in some cases, agreement documents after making deposit payments for the purported housing offers. Subsequently, when attempting to follow up on the progress of the promised houses, they were met with various excuses from the accused.

Conclusion

The sentencing of Suhana Abdullah serves as a reminder of the legal consequences of fraudulent activities and underscores the importance of due diligence in financial transactions.
