Prosecutors levelled charges against a 45-year-old Indonesian woman on attempting to buy a lottery ticket, overstaying and cheating in the Magistrate’s Court yesterday.

Susanti binti Joko is alleged to have attempted to buy a lottery ticket at a building in Kampong Bengkurong on July 4, overstayed in the country after the expiry of her Immigration pass since 2019 and cheating a woman off her gold jewellery worth BND3,047.29.

Allegations state that the defendant cheated the woman claiming that she would invest her jewellery in a gold investment scheme with returns of BND200 monthly.

DPP Nor’adliatul Hidayah binti Haji Mohd Zaidi informed Magistrate Hajah Dewi Norlelawati binti Haji Abdul Hamid that police investigations are ongoing suspecting the involvement of other victims in the gold investment scam.

The court adjourned the case to July 18.
