JOHOR BAHRU (Aug 6): A former deputy general manager of a government-linked company (GLC) was sentenced to a total of 20 years’ jail and fined RM766,000, in default two years and eight months’ jail, by the Sessions Court here today on 10 counts of corruption, involving RM153,200.

Judge Kamarudin Kamsun handed down the sentence on Noor Hisyam Mohd Abdullah Hashim, 46, who pleaded guilty to all the charges.

He was sentenced to two years’ jail on each count, to be served concurrently from today.
