KUALA TERENGGANU (Bernama): “Do not look down on the two women offenders as when they accepted the punishment, it meant they were repentant about their wrongdoing.”

This was the reminder from Syariah Court Judge Kamalruazmi Ismail following the execution of the sentence of six strokes of the cane by the Terengganu Syariah High Court on Monday on two women who were found guilty of attempting to have same-sex relations in a car in April.
