Chinese national fined RM10,000 for using fake MyKad in Malaysian passport application

JOHOR BARU: A Chinese national who obtained a fake MyKad online has been fined RM10,000 at the Sessions Court here after he used it to apply for a Malaysian passport.

Su Ming Bao, 51, a businessman and investor, was alleged to have committed the offence at the Immigration Department at the Home Affairs Ministry building in Taman Setia Tropika here on July 20 at around 10.18am.

According to the fact sheet, Su tried to apply for a Malaysian passport using a fake MyKad in the name of Kevin Su Ming, whose details were also falsified.

He arrived in Malaysia on July 20 on a business trip and his social pass was only valid until Aug 18.

Su confessed that he received the fake MyKad after he paid 200,000 Renminbi (RM140,000) to a Chinese agent whom he met online.

His lawyer Mohd Daud Ismail asked the court for the minimum punishment and to return the accused’s Chinese passport as his father had just passed away hours before Su was charged on Wednesday.

He added that this was the Su’s first offence and he was conned by a syndicate.

DPP Noridayu Md Kassim, who prosecuted, asked for the maximum punishment as it involved a matter of public safety and would act as a deterrent to other offenders.

Judge Kamarudin Kamsun set the fine, in default one year’s jail under Section 12(1)(c) of the Passports Act 1966.

The accused was represented by lawyers Mohd Daud and Muhammad Abd Kadir.
