SISTERS WHO ASSAULTED - 3

12 Jul 2013 11:19

On Sept 11, last year, the Shah Alam High Court dismissed the sisters’ appeal against their conviction and jail sentence.

The High Court allowed the prosecution’s cross-appeal and enhanced to five years for sexual assault and maintained the eight months’ jail term for causing hurt, to be served consecutively.

Both sisters appealed to the High Court against their conviction and jail sentences while the prosecution cross-appealed against the inadequacy of punishment.

Earlier, counsel Hisyam Teh Poh Teik told the court that his clients wanted a chance to appeal against the High Court's decision which enhanced their jail term.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Tengku Intan Suraya Tengku Ismail argued that there was no special circumstances in the case to allow the review.
