High Court rejects jailed ‘police inspector’s’ appeal

Mohammad Azwan bin Zawawi, through his counsel Pengiran Khairul Nizam bin Pengiran Haji Mohd Yassin, submitted that the circumstances of the case simply warranted a probation order as punishment, being a case of a man dressing up as a police officer to flirt with a woman.
