Couple who roughed up MBSA officer gets 14-day jail term

Published:  |  Modified:

A couple who was depicted in a viral video obstructing a Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) enforcer from carrying out her duties have been slapped with a 14-day jail sentence each.

The sentence was delivered by Shah Alam magistrate P Sarulatha today after the man Lor Ka Hoo, 35 and his wife Tan Sit Fun, 30, pleaded guilty to the charge under Section 353 of the Penal Code, as reported by Berita Harian.

Section 353 deals with those who used criminal force to deter a public servant from discharging his or her duties.

The magistrate also ordered a RM3,000 fine per person, failing which they would have to serve another seven days in jail.

However, they were released on RM2,000 bail each pending their appeal against the sentencing.
