A Nigerian private college Student was sentenced on Monday in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Two Years Jail on three counts of using twenty seven pieces of counterfeit RM100 currency notes last year.
Adega Adesola, 27, pleaded guilty in the Sessions Court to committing the offences at Berjaya Times Square, Dang Wangi between 4.24pm and 6.35pm on November 24, 2011.
He was arrested on the same day.
The accused used the counterfeit notes to purchase three pairs of slippers, Two pairs of shorts, a piece of male undergarment, Two belts and Two pairs of shoes from various retail stores in the shopping mall.
He initially claimed trial to the three charges on December 14 last year. However, he changed his plea to guilty on Monday.
Deputy Public Prosecutor Muhamad Abu Hassan Ramli pressed for a deterrent Sentence because of the prevalence of commercial crimes committed by foreigners in the country.
Sessions judge Jagjit Singh sentenced the accused to Two Years Jail for each charge. He ordered the sentences to run concurrently from the date of arrest.
During the same proceeding, Adega also pleaded guilty to overstaying in Malaysia. He was fined RM2, 000 in default of six months jail.
