PETALING JAYA: A mother of two was fined RM500, in default 10 days jail, by the Magistrate’s Court here yesterday over a fracas involving a parking lot with neighbours.
Magistrate Nurulhuda Zakariya meted out the sentence on Arni Shuana Abdullah, 41, a trader, after she pleaded guilty to the charge.
Arni Shuana and another suspect who is still at large had allegedly fought and caused a public disturbance at a condominium in Puchong, near here, at 8.45pm, on Nov 28.
The charge, under Section 160 of the Penal Code, read together with Section 34, provides for a maximum one month’s jail or fine up to RM1,000, or both, upon conviction.
In mitigation, the accused, who was unrepresented, pleaded for a lighter sentence on the grounds that she was a mother of two. However, deputy public prosecutor Natasha Chin Le Jy requested for an appropriate sentence as the fight was only due to a parking space.
According to the facts of the case, the complainant, who was also a single mother, was at the lobby of a condominium when she was approached by three condominium residents and scolded by one of them for parking in a lot that was not hers. A quarrel ensued and the accused hurled offensive remarks as well as pushed the victim on her chest. – Bernama
