TWO men convicted of human smuggling were sentenced by the Intermediate Court yesterday to jail with whipping.
Judge Pg Hjh Hanani Pg Hj Metussain sentenced Sanawadi bin Sanadin to five years’ jail with four strokes of the cane and Esmediade bin Bujang four years with three strokes.
Counsel Rozaiman Rahman applied for the stay of execution for his clients pending the Court of Appeal sessions.
However, it was turned down by the judge who regarded the offences serious.
Sanawadi and Esmediade were convicted of smuggling three Indonesian nationals out of the country through the Sungai Tujoh Control Post on April 17, 2013.
DPP was Abd Raafe Ibrahim.
