Court ups fine for youth who left girlfriend’s body in garage during MCO 1.0

THE Kuantan High Court today increased the fine of RM100 meted out to a youth to RM1,000, for violating the movement-control order (MCO) by leaving his house to carry his girlfriend’s body to a garage near her home, after being involved in a road accident last year.

Judge Zainal Azman Ab Aziz made the ruling after allowing the prosecution’s appeal against the RM100 fine imposed on the 17-year-old by the Rompin magistrates’ court on July 16, last year, after he pleaded guilty to violating the MCO by being outside the house at 3.15am on April 12 last year.
