He wanted to fight crime and be a police inspector. But he did not hesitate to cheat when applying for the post.

Private college student Azamazewan Zakaria, 26, not only ended up not getting the job but was also charged in a magistrate's court yesterday for using as genuine a fake Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia certificate.

Azamazewan, who pleaded guilty, admitted committing the offence at the Bukit Aman Recruitment Unit, Federal police headquarters on March 1 last year.

A police report was lodged against Azamazewan on March 9 by Kamarul Baharin Jamaludin, from the Bukit Aman Recruitment Unit.

Azamazewan, who was arrested on Monday, was calm when a court interpreter read him the charge.

He was charged under Section 471 of the Penal Code which carries a jail term of up to two years, or a fine, or both, upon conviction.

Magistrate Nazran Mohd Sham set the bail at RM1,500 in one surety and fixed Aug 25 for facts and sentencing.
