The magistrate even said it's not necessarily a crime. LOL
Western law is a joke.
I got a real case in Singapore.
A person went to a ATM machine. I won't say which bank. The guy before did a withdrawal of $2000, but he forgot to take the money from the ATM. he only took his card and left the money at the dispenser outlet. So this person came up to the machine and saw the $2000. He looked around, and he was alone.
Being honest, he brought the money to the bank branch that was just next to the ATM. The bank staff refused to take in the money. This person thought nothing of it, and he brought the money home. He left it at home untouched.
A police report was made by the guy who forgot to take the money and they traced to this person and his home. Police came to home, found the original money notes and arrested this person.
As long as the bank is not to blame everything goes.
One time I withdrew 20 bucks from a savings account. When I opened envelope there was $200 inside but receipt says only $20. I thought poor teller made a mistake I will take it back to her tomorrow. I went back next day and they had already corrected my account to say 200 instead of 20. Those bankers know how to count their cash. I am really surprised the money lingered so very long in old girl's account. Since she didn't break a law I hope she makes it back to Malaysia really...perhaps not morally correct but banker shouldn't cry over carelessly spilled milk. They are holding her on another charge waiting to trump up some it looks to me. If I was Malay dignitary I would raise hell with Aussies.
