SEREMBAN: A 27-year-old Danish tourist pleaded not guilty in a magistrate’s court here to reckless driving and causing the deaths of three friends returning from a reunion dinner.
Kenneth Jakobsen, from Naestved in Denmark, was said to be driving a Renault Kangoo with registration number WPF 1651 when he allegedly ploughed into a BMW car in which four friends were returning to Klang from Malacca.
Ghazali Ab Majid, 52, Mohd Sofee Mohd Tahir, 50, and Zulkarnain Adam, 49, died in the accident at the 277th kilometre of the North South Expressway near Nilai near here at 5am on July 4. The other occupant of the BMW sustained serious injuries and was warded at the Tuanku Ja’afar Hospital.
Jakobsen’s car was allegedly involved in a minor accident with a Proton Waja on the northbound lane of the highway before he collided with the BMW a little later. Jakobsen was charged under section 41(1) of the Road Transport Act and upon conviction could be jailed between two years and 10 years and fined between RM5,000 and RM10,000, or both.
He faces another charge of not allowing medical officers to take his blood sample when ordered to do so without giving a valid reason. He apparently committed the offence at the hospital’s Emergency Department between 8am and 10.30am the same day. If found guilty he faces a maximum one-year jail term and fine of between RM1,000 and RM5,000, or both.
Jakobsen, who was in crutches, nodded calmly after the interpreter finished reading the charges.
Chief Inspector Umar Othman asked the court to impose bail of RM20,000 for both charges and order the accused to surrender his passport to the court. Jakobsen informed the court his visa was due to expire on Saturday.
Magistrate Marsilawati Mohamad Shah set bail at RM18,000 and ordered Jakobsen to surrender his passport to the court after having his visa extended and set Sept 20 for re-mention of the case.
Kenneth "the Supid Dane" Jakobsen, You are a fucking asshole. Given the chance, I'd probably ram you with my car while i'm going on the opposite lane in malaysia or in denmark. YOU STUPID TWAT. YOU AND YOUR FATHER ARE SCUM OF THE EARTH.
