PUTRAJAYA – The Court of Appeal today struck out the appeal brought by Member of Parliament for Bukit Katil, Melaka, Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin against a High Court’s dismissal of his constitutional challenge on the law on which he was charged for allegedly participating in the “Black 505” rally.

A three-member panel led by Justice Datuk Mohd Zawawi Salleh held that Shamsul Iskandar’s appeal was not properly brought before the court.

He upheld the preliminary objection raised by deputy public prosecutor Awang Armadajaya Awang Mahmud that Shamsul Iskandar’s appeal violated a Federal Court decision in Gan Boon Aun’s case which stated that only the Federal Court was empowered to decide on the constitutionality of the law.

Justice Zawawi who presided with Justices Tan Sri Idrus Harun and Datuk Kamardin Hashim, ordered the matter to be remitted to the Sessions Court.

He said Shamsul Iskandar must strictly comply with Section 30 and Section 84 of the Courts of Judicature Act 1964 in making his challenge on the constitutionality of the law by referring it to the Federal Court to decide on the matter.

On Aug 5, 2013, Shamsul Iskandar, 41, with Khairul Anuar Ahmad Zainuddin, 37, and Mohd Nazree Mohd Yunus, 30, claimed trial at the Sessions Court to a charge of allegedly participating in the rally in the compound of the Ar-Rahman Mosque at Universiti Malaya between noon and 1.15pm on June 22, 2013.

The charge provides for a maximum fine of RM20,000 upon conviction.

Shamsul Iskandar then filed an application at the High Court on March 31, 2014 seeking the court to strike out his charge on grounds that Section 4 (2) of the Peaceful Assembly Act 2012 was unconstitutional and contradicted Article 10 (1) (b) of the Federal Constitution.

Thd High Court dismissed his application on Feb 26, last year, prompting him to appeal to the Court of Appeal.

Earlier, Awang Armadajaya submitted that Shamsul Iskandar’s failure to comply with the provisions in Section 30 and Section 84, was fatal to his appeal. Also appearing for the prosecution was DPP Nadia Hanim Mohd Tajuddin.

Lawyer Datuk Kamarul Hisham Kamaruddin, representing Shamsul Iskandar, argued that his client could bring his appeal to the appellate court as the High Court had exercised its original jurisdiction in deciding on the matter. – BERNAMA

In the judgment, Ab Karim said Mohd Shaifful Shahril should realise that Muhammad Wanndy Mohamed Jedi was a terrorist.

Earlier during mitigation, Mohd Shaifful Shahril said he was influenced by the group, but was now remorse and regretted his doings.

“I cannot bear to be separated from my family and hoped to be given a chance to change,” he added.
