KUALA LUMPUR – A health drink seller nicknamed “Ustaz Casanova” was sentenced by the Syariah High Court to 12 months’ jail and ordered to be whipped six times for having sex with a woman out of wedlock.

Mohd Razis Ismail, 34, admitted to sexual intercourse with the 40-year-old woman, who was not his lawful wife, at a hotel room in Jalan Haji Hussein between March and May 2012.

The woman gave birth to a girl on Dec 6 that year.

Mohd Razis was reported to have been married 13 times and have eight children. He was clad in the Federal Territories Islamic Religious Department (Jawi) grey lock-up clothing when in the dock yesterday.

Two of his ex-wives and his four-year-old twin daughters were in the public gallery.

Syarie judge Nassir Abdul Aziz said he had considered the charge, seriousness of the offence, the background of the accused and the consequences to the parties involved.

“The accused used a religious image to carry out his activities until it became viral, embarrassed the religion and caused negative perceptions to those religious people who genuinely carry out their work,” he said.

Also, Mohd Razis had pleaded for a lesser sentence but did not show remorse, he said.

The judge said the court had noted that Mohd Razis had knowingly committed the offence which was wrong under Islamic law.

He said a “corrective approach should be taken” against the accused to rehabilitate him, and that this could be done in prison for a certain period.

Besides that, public interest warrants an appropriate sentence be meted out against Mohd Razis as he had deceived many into marriage, resulting in his nickname, Nassir said.

In a lower Syariah court later, Judge Mohd Saifullah Hamzah fixed March 14 for the sentencing of Mohd Razis on other charges, related to attempted polygamy and marrying without permission from a registrar.

Yesterday, Jawi senior Syarie prosecutor Zainor Rashid Hassin told the lower Syariah court that the accused projected an image of being an ustaz and a religious officer.

“He wrongly gave his status as a bachelor when he already has three wives,” he said.

He said Jawi’s investigations showed that the accused had married 13 women between 2003 and 2011.

Mohd Razis had on Feb 29 admitted to three charges of attempted polygamy without getting the written permission of the Federal Territory Syariah Court, involving three women, aged 24, 30 and 40, between 2010 and 2012.

He had also admitted to two charges of marrying two women, aged 24 and 40, in Golok, Thailand, and here respectively, without getting permission from a registrar, between 2010 and 2012. – The Star Online


KOTA BHARU – A former army sergeant was sentenced to 20 years’ jail by the High Court here today for causing the death of a 34-year-old school clerk two years ago with an explosive.

Che Rosli Che Daud, 31, was meted out the punishement by Justice Datuk Azman Abdullah who found him guilty of causing Mohd Yusrizal Mat Zain’s death in front of a house at Lot 127, Blok N, Perumahan JPN Kok Seraya Chabang Empat, Tumpat.

The ex-sergeant committed the offence between 10 am and 11 am on Aug 11, 2013.

The judge said the victim’s death was a great tragedy as it happened just a few days after Aidilfitri and in front of the latter’s family.

Counsel Datuk Shukri Mohamed during mitigation submitted that Che Rosli was remorseful of his action.

“The deceased was not his target as they did not know each other. It was unfortunate that the deceased had chosen to pick up the explosive. The accused also had not intended to do something that would cause death,” he said.

However, deputy public prosecutor Ainul Wardiah Shahidan countered that the accused deserved an appropriate sentence in the interest of the public.

“The accused is skilled in making an explosive and knows it could cause death, and had acted out of jealousy. The action was extreme and reckless,” she submitted.

In the incident on Aug 11, 2013, Mohd Yusrizal, a clerk at Sekolah Kebangsaan Manek Urai in Kuala Krai died after a parcel he had picked up from the top of a Naza Citra MPV in front of his in laws’ house, exploded. – BERNAMA

A Malaysian national was jailed for three years and ordered to be given three strokes of the cane on Thursday for molesting an 11-year-old boy.

Lee Kok Long, 26, pleaded guilty to pushing the 11-year-old boy into a toilet cubicle and grabbing his private parts at Fuchun Community Club in Woodlands on Dec 7 last year.

He also admitted to stealing two mobile phones worth S$496 (RM1277) from a unit at Block 314 Woodlands Street 31 about eight months earlier.

The court heard that Lee was in the club’s toilet when he peeped through a hole in the partition and saw the victim.

When the boy came out, Lee pushed him back in, closed the door and molested him. The boy ran away, and told his father what had happened at home.

They looked for Lee and the boy spotted him at the void deck of a block of flats in Woodlands Street 31. The father confronted Lee and called the police.

In April last year Lee had been walking along the flat corridor in the early hours of the morning when he saw, through an open door, a man asleep with two phones on another bed nearby.

He managed to get his hands on the phones with a 1.5m rod.

Lee sold one of the phones for S$550 (RM440), while the other was recovered when he was arrested.

He could have been jailed for up to 10 years and caned for wrongfully restraining and molesting a person under 14 years old. For theft, the maximum penalty is seven years jail and a fine. – The Straits Times/ANN
