An appeal judge has called for measures to be taken to avoid future situations in which an offender has served his jail term, or a good part of it, before his appeal is heard.
Justice Chao Hick Tin made the remarks in his written judgment, published yesterday, in the case of three national servicemen who went on a stealing spree at a police station.
Saiful Rizam Assim, Muhammad Erman Iman Tauhid and Muhammad Yunus Aziz were sentenced to between seven months and one-and-a-half years by a district court in April last year.
The prosecution team appealed, arguing for a sentence of reformative training instead.
Justice Chao, who said he had been “troubled” by the case, said he felt they should have been sent for reformative training. But he eventually decided against it as it would amount to “double punishment” for the trio. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
