sixthseal.com drug possession court case coverage in the papers

I wasn’t planning to explain anything on this blog. I wanted to keep
the court case under wraps, but since the papers came out with it
today, it seems that they have forced my hand. I did not talk to the reporters. It seems they got my details from the Kuching High Court staff.

Assistant Engineer fined for having drugs

KUCHING: An assistant engineer of a security alarm
system company was fined RM 2,500 in default two months jail for
possessing 2.85 grams of ganja.

H B Poh, 25, pleaded guilty before Magistrate Tengku Sharizam Tuah
Lah who convicted him under Section 6 of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.

He possessed the drug at his home at Jalan Tabuan at 2:30 pm on November 21 last year. He paid the fine.

ASP Clermund Sim persecuted in both cases.

Notes: Two thumbs down for revealing my area of work. This case is personal and has nothing to do with the company.

Also, thanks for butchering my title – it’s Systems Engineer, not Assistant Engineer. I know it sounds the same, but it’s not.

Engineer fined RM 2,500 for drug

eastern times court case

Source: Eastern Times (ex Sarawak Tribune)

KUCHING: An engineer of a private firm was fined RM
2,500, in default, two months jail by a magistrate’s court here
yesterday after he pleaded guilty to possessing cannabis.

Magistrate Tengku Sharizam Tuan Lah imposed the sentence against Poh
Huai Bin, 24, from Sibu after he pleaded guilty to a charge framed
under Section 6 of the Dangerous Drugs Act, 1952.

Poh admitted to possessing 2.85 grammes of cannabis at 2:30 pm in a
room of an apartment at Chong Lin Park near Jalan Tabuan on November
21st, last year.

According to the facts of the case, a police party led by Inspector
Kumaran a/l Sanmugam arrested the accused in his office near Jalan Rock
for alleged involvement in drug activities.

The accused later brought the police to his apartment at Chong Lin
Park where he showed them a cigarette packet containing dry leaves. The
police seized the packet and immediately arrested him.

In mitigation, Poh pleaded with the court for a lenient sentence
saying that he was the sole breadwinner of his family and promised to
turn over a new leaf.

Poh paid the fine.

Notes: OMG! How did the Eastern Times get such detailed information?!?!?

That said, thank you very much for showing professionalism by not revealing the line of work I’m in.

There is something to nitpick though – it is technically impossible
for someone to be arrested TWICE. I was only arrested ONCE – at my
office. The PDRM Narcotics raiding party had details of me (directive
came from Bukit Aman) so I had to lead them to my apartment.

Speaking of which, I also have much thanks for revealing where I
live. Seriously. I’m indebted. I don’t know how to thank you enough.

After notes:

I will only say what the papers have said. I don’t know if the
Chinese dailies came out with the news as well, coz there were a lot of
reporters there (Hello Connie!). I was indeed raided by a team from the
PDRM (Royal Malaysian Police) Narcotics Division
(Sarawak State contingent, instead of the local Kuching Division
contingent) and arrested to be remanded (it’s a euphemism for locking
you up) for 14 days in jail under the standard provisions to the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952 (ADB 1952) last year.

I was in jail for three days. It was not a pleasant stay, but at
least they gave me access to my medication (benzodiazepines). I might
or might not be doing a CPS Jail Kuching report. I met a lot of
interesting people in there (some were in for Penal 302 – murder) and
before you ask, my asshole is perfectly intact and still very much
virginal, thank you very much. :p

I went to the remand court twice (being handcuffed behind your back
is a bitch especially if you have an itch to scratch – and the
handcuffs are not like the ones you see in movies – these are handcuffs
with only a single short and solid metal bar in between, there is no
chain link, so movement is SEVERELY restricted) and the first appeal
was turned down and I resigned myself to a 14 day stay in jail (which
isn’t really that bad, if you disregard the dirtiness – it’s the
BOREDOM that gets to you).

However, I was released on my second appeal due to heavy lobbying
that I wasn’t going to pull a runner (low risk skipping bail profile
due to my career) and I was allowed bail before the standard 14 days so
I was released after 3 days in jail. One thing I learned in jail is
that it’s practically a University of Crime. I learned things in my
short stay and made acquaintances that were heavily into crime.

I made a guilty plea during my court case yesterday. I did not want
to fight the charges as it was a very much reduced charge. I had
planned to plead guilty from Day 1.

This is my story and please do not complicate matters by asking inappropriate questions like “Why weren’t you charged with drug use as well during your urine test?” (instant 2 year rehabilitation sentence) or “Wasn’t there drug paraphernalia at your apartment?” (another DDA 1952 charge) “Aren’t there other drugs at your premises since you’re a poly-drug user?” (please refer to reduced charge comment above).

I maintain that only cannabis was found at my apartment and I am not
a drug user. *cough* I don’t know how the cannabis got there, but it
was there, so here I am with a drug possession charge. That is my
official statement and that is the only thing I am being charged with -
drug possession.

Thank you very much, dear readers, for all the support. I gave a lot
to sixthseal.com and I sure hope you enjoyed it coz I sure didn’t enjoy
my time in jail. ;)

Now that everything is over – regular sixthseal.com programming will continue as scheduled. :)

Long live sixthseal.com!

Hail to the King, baby! =D
