COURT-INSULT PROPHET 2 (LAST) KUALA LUMPUR

 

Earlier, Ain Zafira’s lawyer Nor Azri Mohd Arif pleaded the court for a minimum sentence on the grounds that his client, besides regretting her actions, had learnt her lesson.

“My client is the second of two siblings, still a student being cared for by her mother, who is a single parent.

“She is regretful over what she did and apologises to everyone affected by the posting, which has already been deleted,” he told the court.

However, Deputy Public Prosecutor Annur Atiqah Abd Hadi urged the court to hand a sentence that will act as a deterrent, saying that her act had angered Muslims in the country.

She said a deterrent sentence will serve as a lesson to all Malaysians to be more sensitive and careful before sharing their views on social media.

Ain Zafira paid the fine.
