    Mosque arsonist gets minor reprieve

    A thief who attempted to destroy CCTV evidence by burning down the mosque in Kampong Mentiri in 2017, had his nine-year jail term reduced to seven-years-and-eight months by the Court of Appeal, citing the appellant’s guilty plea and seeing a lesser ‘intent to cause damage’ in the arson charge.

    Mohd Erwan bin Manggis appealed for a lighter sentence, expressing remorse for the crime, while also saying that the punishment was too heavy. He still faces six canings.
