I'm a Magistrate

Assalamualaikum & Goodday

I received a phone call just now. It was from the local police. The conversation went like this:

Police : A'kum Tuan, saya Inspektor Zulham dari IPD Sg. Siput Tuan
Me : W'salam, ada apa inspektor? (Aku ada kena saman ke eh?)
Police : Nak mintak tolong sket la tuan, Majistret takde hari ini
Me : Ok..... (So?)
Police : Jadi kami nak mintak tolong tuan sain untuk tahan reman la tuan
Me : Oooo...ok. Datang la. (what?!!!!)
Police : Tima kasih tuan, saya datang dalam 1/2 jam lagi. A'kum
Me : W'salam

Finally, i was able to exercise my power as a Magistrate. FYI, an ADO is gazetted as Magistrate Class II. So, today, the local magistrate is not in. So the only other person who could sign the remand order is me.

I suddenly realized that i didnt know what to do. Mula la gelabah. Call sana call sini. ehehhehe...

So when the police came, i was 90% ready. The accused was a frail looking old chinese guy. I dont have to discuss lah what he did eh.

The procedings went well. The interpretor read the pertuduhan to the accused. I then asked him whether he understood or not? He said yes. Then asked for his plea. He said "saya mengaku bersalah tuan".

Then i asked him if he has anything else to say. He asked for bail. I looked at the policeman, he nodded and said "RM 2,000.00 tuan" I then jot down some notes on the remand sheet and signed it and stamped it. Selesai. phewww

Honestly, i was excited+nervous+scared.

Excited because it is new experience. Hey not any tom, dick & harry can send a man into prison ok :)

Nervous, because it is a first time and i didnt want to do any mistake. No play-play ok. This is the law we're talking about.

Scared kalo2 the accused would blame me for remanding him. Mana la tau kan. Orang2 camnih bukannya bleh percaya. But Insyaallah. I was just doing my job.
