SHAH ALAM: A husband and wife were jailed for 14 days and fined RM3,000 by the Magistrate’s Court here for harassing a Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) officer.
Magistrate P Sarulatha handed down the jail sentence and fine to husband Lor Ka Fun and wife Tan Sit Fun, who both pleaded guilty to a charge under Section 353 of the Penal Code for using criminal force to intimidate Nurul Ain Isa, a public servant from discharging her duty.
The duo committed the offence at a public parking space in Jalan BRP 6/12, Bukit Rahman Putra, Sungai Buloh on Nov 24.
However, the couple asked for a stay of execution pending their appeal against the sentence, which Sarulatha allowed.
They were granted a RM2,000 bail each pending their appeal.
A two-minute video of two individuals harassing an MBSA officer went viral on social media.
It is believed the officer was in the midst of issuing a parking summons to a vehicle for failing to display parking coupon.
However, after the summons was issued, a woman, believed to be the owner of the car, started scolding the MBSA officer.
Subsequently a man, believed to be the woman’s husband, came to her help, leading to more harassment as he tried to block the officer from leaving the scene. – FMT
