KUALA LUMPUR: The trio known as Datuk T businessman Datuk Shazryl Eskay Abdullah, former Perkasa treasurer-general Datuk Shuaib Lazim and former Malacca chief minister Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Thamby Chik have been slapped with fines totalling RM5,500 for their public screening of a sex video in March.

Shazryl Eskay and Shuaib, who had earlier pleaded guilty to publicly screening an obscene video clip at Bilik Seri Makmur, Carcosa Seri Negara in Kuala Lumpur, between 10am and noon, on March 21, were fined a total of RM4,500 by a magistrate court here.

Shazryl Eskay was fined RM3,000 in default of three months' jail while Shuaib was slapped with a RM1,500 fine in default of two months' jail.

Abdul Rahim, who admitted to the charge of abetting them, was fined RM1,000 in default of a month's jail.

All three were charged before magistrate Aizatul Akmal Maharani.

Deputy public prosecutors Datuk Kamaludin Md Said and Mohd Hanafiah Zakaria prosecuted while the men were represented by lawyers Zamani Ibrahim, Suhaimi Salleh and Datuk Seri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah.

In pleading for a light sentence, Muhammad Shafee said while the sex video shown was obscene, the intention was never to corrupt or deprave public morals.

Zamani said the men paid their fines.
