    Appeals Court upholds jail, reduces caning sentence

    The Court of Appeal on November 19 discounted a housebreaking offender’s canings from three to two strokes on finding that the sentencing court had not given discounts on considering punishment.

    Court of Appeal President Justice Michael Peter Burrell and Justices Conrad Seagroatt and Michael Victor Lunn revised the case against Muhammad Aiman bin Morni.

    Prosecutor Ahmad Firdaus bin Mohammad assisted the court in responding to Muhammad Aiman’s application for reduction in overall sentence. The appellant had pleaded guilty to five charges of theft, handling stolen goods and housebreaking resulting in a sentence handed by the Intermediate Court to three years and four months’ jail with three canings.
