JOHOR BARU: A member of the royalty and two others were sentenced to four years' jail each for voluntarily causing hurt to national boxer Muhammad Farkha Mohd Haron two years ago.

Tunku Nick Tazuddin Izwan Syah Tunku Qadir, 28, Alex Foo Hee Wee, 42, and Mohd Arif Husin, 36, were found guilty of jointly committing the offence with a blunt weapon, at Jalan Molek 3/2, Taman Molek here between 4.30 am and 7 am on May 6, 2012.

Sessions judge Zamri Bakar said the prosecution succeeded in establishing a prima facie case against the trio.

Deputy public prosecutor Dzul Iswari Mohd Jaafar appeared for the prosecution while the trio were represented by counsel Norman Fernandez, Mohd Abdul Kadir, Zamri Idros and Mazri Muhamad.

Earlier, Muhammad Farkhan, 25, gave a Victim Impact Statement on the incident.

The judge also rejected an application by the defence for a stay of the custodial sentence and ordered the trio to serve their terms from today.
