From The Star (20 January 2010), a Jobless man gets 5 yrs for stealing some beer.
Zulhaidi Hamzah was sentenced by the Magistrates Court in JB to 5 years jail for stealing 11 cans of beer worth RM70 from a mini mart in Pasir Gudang.
Compare Zulhaidi's sentence to this one, where The Malaysian Insider reported that an Umno MP and his aide get six-year jail terms on eight counts of making false claims totalling RM80,000 for events that never took place four years ago.
On top of the relatively lenient sentence, the Shah Alam Sessions Court also granted them a stay of execution pending appeal.
Look, Zulhaidi was an unemployed and probably uneducated man, while the latter two were a politician and his fully employed (presumably educated) aide, so where was the judicial considerations of these aspects in these two cases?
Then from Malaysiakini, we heard that an Elderly man was probed over Dr M's 'letter' to Israeli PM.
Liew Khooi Cheng, 73, was called by the MCMC to record a statement at the TTDI police station today. Liew was alleged to have spread to the public that contained seditious elements, namely an alleged email from former prime minister Dr M to the prime minister of Israel.
Today, The Malaysian Insider reported Government releases Dr M’s letters to Israeli PMs.
Will the MCMC now call Anifah Aman, the Foreign Minister, to a police station to record his statement reagrding such letters from Dr M to the prime minister of Israel?
