Briton fined $33 for using 'F' word at Malaysia cop

KUALA LUMPUR (The Star/Asia News Network) - A British engineer was fined RM100 (S$33) by a Magistrate's court here for uttering the four-letter word to a policeman.

Magistrate Siti Radziah Kamarudin meted out the sentence on Morgan Aled, 50, after he pleaded guilty to saying "F*** you, F*** you police," after the car he and his wife was driving in was pulled over by a policeman.

The offence was committed at Jalan Tun H. S. Lee in Kuala Lumpur at 12.30am on July 17.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Nor Diana Nor Azwa asked that a deterrent sentence be given.

The unrepresented Aled said "I am very sorry," and asked for a fine instead of a jail sentence when pleading for leniency.

He was charged under Section 14 of the Minor Offences Act.
