|Deterrent is needed. This bloke has broken too many laws...now he thinks he is an untouchable...|
Yes, I am of the opinion that a stiffer penalty should have been imposed on Hishamuddin Rais for sedition.
He was fined only $5000 for his crime and that amount is a mere pittance to him and his supporter. But, instead our court, which I sometime deemed to be weak and toothless in drawing or making judgements, should have imposed both imprisonment and a fine.
Reason being, Hishamuddin is old, 63 years old, so a prison term might make him uncomfortable being an old man.
Just read anywhere else if a person, young or old, break the law they have to pay for it.
Ever notice how Hishamuddin has been , all these years, dyeing his hair and moustache and goatee black to look young, unless if he was mentally and physically retarded the court should have imposed a jail sentence also on him
A deterrent to deter anyone form making a mockery out of our judicial system is imperative...I am just saying.
