MIRI, Dec 12: A man has been remanded until Dec 13 for allegedly causing a commotion at the Miri Central Police Station during the wee hours of Tuesday morning (Dec 10).

Prior to the incident which happened at around 4.20am, the 54-year-old accused had walked into the police station to lodge a report.

While waiting for the policewoman to enter his information into the database, the suspect was recording a video of her with his cell phone, accusing the police personnel of demeaning him.

It was believed that the accused was under the influence of alcohol when the incident took place.

Despite being warned multiple times not to record the video, the man had accused the policewoman of giving him “second class” treatment.

He allegedly threatened to post the video on social media.

Following the incident, the policewoman then filed a police report against him, and he was detained that same day around 10.20am at a hotel near the police station.

He was produced at the Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday for the remand application.

The accused was represented by his counsel Sam Laya.

Initially, the case investigation officer had applied for four days of remand, but Magistrate Md Syafique Md Hilmie meted out a remand order for two days.

The offence is framed under Section 90 of the Police Act 1967. —DayakDaily
