The Intermediate Court sentenced a sales representative to 20 months’ imprisonment after he pleaded guilty to misappropriating over BND5,000 of his employing company’s cash.
According to DPP Emily Goh, 53-year-old permanent resident Kueh Lee Hong’s commission of the criminal breach of trust against Chop Kim San was committed over four transactions in 2016.
Judge Pengiran Hajah Norismayanti binti Pengiran Haji Ismail further heard from the prosecution that the defendant received BND5,397 from sales between June 8 and August 18, 2016 but did not hand over the money to his cashier.
It was discovered when one of the company staff contacted several customers to ask for payments to which were thought to be outstanding according to the sales invoices. Internal investigation led to uncovering the defendant’s misdemeanor.
