Duo jailed for illegal transferring of fuel at sea

The Intermediate Court on Monday handed 14 months’ jail sentences to two local men for illegally transferring fuel to another vessel while out at sea.

Ahmad Marzuqi bin Musaddad and Awangku Abdul Hafiz bin Pengiran Ibrahim were first charged with others.

The rest had pleaded guilty at the first instance and received their sentences.

The duo claimed trial to the conspiracy charges and had been found guilty by Judge Harnita Zelda Skinner.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Pengiran Hajah Nor ‘Azmeena binti Pengiran Haji Mohiddin proved the case against the duo beyond reasonable doubt.
