JOHOR BARU: Two Immigration officers, including an assistant director, were among five charged at the Sessions Court here today with multiple counts of migrant smuggling last month.

Noryati Abu Bakar, 50, the department’s assistant director, and Haris Fadzilah Abu Bakar, 48, a senior Immigration officer, were each charged with eight counts of migrant smuggling.

They were accused of smuggling in eight Indonesian migrants at the Pasir Gudang ferry terminal on June 15, 2020, at about noon.

They were charged under Section 26A of the Anti-Trafficking of Persons and Anti- Smuggling of Migrants Act 2007, which can be penalised under the same Act and read together with Section 34 of the Penal Code.

Facing similar charges were labourer M. Amir Nasir who faces eight charges, ticket agent Tengku Jajang Sagita Tengku Redzuan, who faces two charges and security guard Razali Mohamad, who faces one charge.

No pleas were recorded from all the accused when the charges were read in five different courtrooms in front of judge Kamarudin Kamsun; judge Faiz Dziyauddin, judge V. Mabel Sheela, judge Wan Norisham Wan Yaacob and judge Aizatul Akma Maharani.
