Ex-DiGi man jailed & fined RM2.07 million

The ex-employee of DiGi Telecommunications, S. Stanley, 40 was found guilty at the Sessions Court in Shah Alam with 14 counts of taking bribes worth RM415,000. He is sentenced to four years in prison and a fine of RM2.07 million.

Stanley who is the senior procurement officer at DiGi about 3 years ago, is said to have accepted bribes from Syarikat Nakhoda Sistem Sdn Bhd on 14 occasions from Aug 13, 2007 to Oct 22, 2008 as an inducement to choose Nakhoda as the supplier of cables and telecommunication equipment for DiGi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd. He committed the offence at a Maybank branch in Taman Kinrara in Puchong.

The judge however allowed the sentence to be deferred pending appeal to the High Court.

The former DiGi employee was charged under Section 11 (a) of the Anti-Corruption Act 1997 and was liable to be jailed a minimum of 14 days and a maximum of 20 years and fined five times the corrupt amount or RM10,000, whichever is higher.
