JOHOR BARU: A monk from China pleaded guilty at a Magistrates Court here for causing a public disturbance at a restaurant when people refused to give him alms.
Zhang Bo, 50 from Anhui, China who was dressed in robes, appeared slightly confused when the facts of the case were read to him.
He was said to have caused the disturbance at the Ong Lai Restaurant in Taman Universiti, Skudai on Oct 3 at around 12.30pm.
He was alleged to have made a lot of noise and of scaring the customers when they refused to donate money to him.
When the shopowner asked him to leave, Zhang ignored him and allegedly dared him to make a police report.
Magistrate Hafizah Johor Ariff Johor fined Zhang RM50 under Section 14 of the Minor Offences Act, 1955. He paid the fine.
