The Myvi driver responsible for the death of a police officer on 1 November in Johor has been sentenced to eight years in prison and fined RM30,000 by the Magistrate’s Court for dangerous driving resulting in death.

The accused, Mohamad Syafiq Lokman, 25, pleaded guilty after the charge was read out by Magistrate Mohd Zaki Abd Rahman, reported Harian Metro.

In the same charge, he was also disqualified from having a driving licence for up to five years and if he failed to pay the fine, he would have to serve 12 months in prison.

This is the first case that was imposed a heavier sentence according to the new amendment of Section 41(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987, which states that the accused can face a maximum jail term of 10 years, a maximum fine of RM50,000 and disqualification of licence for up to five years for the first conviction.

In a separate court, Mohamad Syafiq received a third charge for deliberately obstructing a civil servant from carrying out their duties by refusing to stop the vehicle as instructed by the police at the time of the incident. He was sentenced to another 12 months in jail separately and fined RM5,000.
