KOTA KINABALU: The Sessions Court set 30 May to 1 April this year to hear the case of a transportation company involving two charges of using unlicensed vehicles for tourism activity under the Tourism Vehicles Licensing Act 1999.
Judge Ainul Shahrin Mohamad set the date after the company represented by its director maintained its plea of not guilty.
For the first charge, Pengangkutan Nabalu Sdn Bhd company was accused of committing the offense at Jalan Poring, Ranau, at 12.50pm, in 2 May last year.
For the second charge, the company allegedly repeated the same offense in 1 October last year, at 8.05pm, at Jalan Kota Belud.
The company was charged under Section 19 (1) of the Tourism Vehicles Licensing Act 1999, which carries the punishment of up to RM50,000 fine or five years jail maximum, or both.
The same court also set 7 January for the mention of a case involving a van driver for similar offense.
The court set the next trial after the accused, Chin Chee Vui, applied to be represented by a lawyer.
Chin was charged of committing the offense at Jalan Poring, Ranau, in 5 February last year, at 12.00pm.
Vice Prosecutor Afzan Abd. Kahar prosecuted both cases. -SayangSabah
