PETALING JAYA: A former imam who threw his slippers at Federal Court judges during a proceeding last month has been jailed a year for contempt of court.
Hoslan Husin appeared in the court at 9.35am Thursday for a show-cause proceeding as to why he should not be cited for contempt before the same panel of judges who heard his earlier case.
The panel found Hoslan guilty of the charge for failing to explain his conduct of throwing a pair of slippers at the judges on Feb 22.
Hoslan hurled his slippers at the panel of judges, chaired by Chief Judge of Malaya Tan Sri Zulkefli Ahmad Makinuddin, after it rejected his application for the court to hear his appeal.
Hoslan was in court to challenge his eviction order from the Ar-Rahimah Mosque in Kampung Pandan.
