Abdul Kudus Gets Jail And Fine For Corruption

KUALA LUMPUR, June 30 (Bernama) -- Former Ampang Jaya Municipal Council enforcement director Capt (R) Abdul Kudus Ahmad was sentenced to 11 years 10 months jail and RM370,000 fine by the Ampang Sessions Court here today on 24 counts of corruptly soliciting and accepting bribes totalling RM59,000.

Judge Noradidah Ahmad found him guilty after ruling that the defence had failed to cast a reasonable doubt on the prosecution's case.The trial stretched nearly six years, starting on Aug 9, 2003, and involved 12 prosecution and 12 defence witnesses including former deputy Housing and Local Government minister Datuk M.Kayveas.

Kudus, 46, was sentenced to five months in jail on two counts each and six months for each of the rest but the jail terms run consecutively.
His lawyer had the cheek to say his client was a small fry and there are bigger fish involving bigger sums but they escaped punishments. Kudus is a small fry and not a shark. It is unfair if sharks got off. Well I'd say one scumbag at a time!
