Former Solidariti Mahasiswa Malaysia (SMM) chairperson Muhammad Safwan Anang @ Talib won his appeal for a lighter sentence for his sedition conviction at the Kuala Lumpur High Court today.

The defence had appealed on the conviction and the sentence but the judge Mohd Azman Husin only accepted the appeal for a lighter sentence.

The 26-year-old had his sentence reduced to RM5,000 fine or two years' jail if he fails to pay the fine.
