Man gets 15 years’ jail, 12 canings for burglaries

The Intermediate Court on Saturday sentenced a local man to 15 years’ jail with 12 canings after being convicted of charges of armed robbery and house breaking.

Mohammad Noh bin Mohd Edham first denied involvement with a trio in a jewellery heist in Kampong Tanjung Bunut.

However, the defendant was convicted on June 4 after Prosecutor Atiyyah Abas brought in 17 witnesses to prove the case against Mohammad Noh, who called one person to testify in his favour.
