KUALA PILAH, April 2 — A public servant pleaded not guilty in the Sessions Court here today to committing criminal breach of trust with using a fuel card issued by the government to its drivers for his private car.

Saiful Nazim Abdul Rahim, 41, a driver at the Petaling Dental office and Pertang Dental Clinic in Jelebu, made the plea before judge Nariman Badruddin.
