His attempts to get others to take the rap for his traffic violations landed former property agent Haresh Vishindas Chandiramani in hot soup.

He was fined a total of $13,000 on Friday for perverting the course of justice and attempting to do so.

The 42-year-old was fined $5,000 for offering $200 to part-time property agent Raymond Tan Yew Chye, as a reward for him to assume criminal liability on his behalf for driving along a road shoulder in September 2009.

He was also fined $8,000 for getting Azli Mohd Hasan to take the rap for his traffic offence.
