Court rejects bail plea of woman convicted in car cheating case

| Fadley Faisal |

RANNIE Labu, one half of a Malaysian couple facing 46 charges of cheating people into parting with their cars by the Magistrate’s Court, has had her bail application rejected.

Wong Soon Teck has pleaded guilty to the charges and is currently awaiting his sentence.

Rannie, who has denied the charges against her and awaiting trial in September, has applied in the High Court yesterday to be released on bail.

Lawyer Balendran Balasingam, representing Rannie, submitted before Justice Dato Paduka Haji Hairol Arni bin Haji Abdul Majid that his client had just given birth while on remand at Jerudong Prison and requires nourishment to be able to lactate and breastfeed her baby.

DPP Yvonne Lim objected to the application, submitting that the defendant poses a flight risk.

Justice Dato Paduka Haji Hairol Arni refused the defendant’s bail application.

Wong and Rannie were arrested by CID police with an out-of-jurisdiction warrant in the late afternoon of November 18, 2016 in Miri, Sarawak.

DPP Yvonne Lim’s 46 charges against the duo carry a penalty of seven years’ imprisonment and fine for each of the defendants.
