Man fined RM1,500 for threatening HR executive

Kuching: Management staff at a construction company threatened to beat up a human resources (HR) executive after his request for a RM4,000 salary increase was not approved.

However, the move backfired on Friday (April 26) when Kelvin Lo Hee Chai was sentenced by the local magistrate court to a RM1,500 fine for failing to serve four months in prison. It came out.

Law pleaded guilty to the charge under Section 506 of the Penal Code, which was read out to him before Judge Mason Jaro Renya Balayan.

If convicted, Mr Low could be sentenced to up to seven years in prison, a fine, or both.

According to the indictment, he is suspected of intentionally making criminal threats against the victim, a 48-year-old woman who works as a human resources management executive.

Lo committed the crime at 1:20pm on April 24 at the company’s office in Jalan Lapangan Telban.

According to the facts of the case, the complainant, who was the company’s human resources manager at the time of the incident, was at work when Lo approached him and threatened to beat him.

The incident arose after the defendant requested a RM4,000 salary increase, but the company ignored his request.

Additionally, Law became enraged and began punching doors and attempting to damage property within the office.

Mr Law was then arrested by security guards on duty and later handed over to the police for further action.

The prosecutor, Inspector Merrilene Lindang Andrew Mang, prosecuted the case, but Lo was not represented by a lawyer.
