Married couples will always have their fair share of verbal fights and arguments, but to accuse the other of theft is indeed a massive red flag and a sign that things are not well.
This was exactly what happened to a couple in Ipoh, where the wife found herself appearing in court after she was accused of being a thief by her own husband.
M’sian police officer accuses wife of stealing his Rolex watches
The accused was 41-year-old Datuk Mou Ei Leen, who was taken to the Ipoh Magistrate’s Court today and charged with theft, reported NST.
Based on the charge sheet, she was alleged to have stolen two Rolex watches which belonged to her husband, who works as a police officer, at a house with the address of Number 5, Laluan Rapat Ria 3, Pinggiran Rapat Ria, in January 2021.
The watches were a Rolex Sky-Dweller (Model 326135) with series number 0890R359 and Rolex GMT Master-II 9 (Model 116718 LN) with series number A9R56702.
The charge was framed under Section 380 of the Penal Code, which provides a jail term of up to 10 years, and a fine if convicted.
Mou pleaded not guilty when the charge was read out before magistrate Siti Nora Sharif.
Lived separately from husband
Deputy Public Prosecutor Noor Nabilah Norzam, who prosecuted the case, requested for a RM7,000 bail to be imposed.
Mou’s lawyer Gurbachan Singh asked for it to be lowered, saying that his client is a housewife and needs to care for two schoolchildren.
He also disclosed that Mou had lived separately from her estranged husband for two years and is in the midst of divorcing him, adding that both of them were cohabitating at the time of the alleged theft.
Bail was set at RM3,000 with one surety and the court fixed November 22 for case mention.
