Couple who harassed MBSA officer gets 14-day jail term, but they might get a harsher sentence

Despite being sentenced to a 14-day jail term, the ordeal is far from over for the couple who harassed a female Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) enforcement officer last week.

Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali told Bernama that the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) has filed an appeal against the sentence handed down by the Shah Alam magistrate’s court last Friday.

The sentence – 14 days jail and RM3,000 fine – meted on Tan Sit Fun, 30, and Lor Ka Hoo, 35, was deemed “manifestly inadequate”, said Mohamed Apandi.

“Although both the accused had pleaded guilty, a commensurate sentence should be imposed as a lesson to them, as well as others to not commit the same mistake,” Mohamed Apandi was quoted as saying.

The AGC, according to Mohamed Apandi, viewed the incident as a serious offence.

On Friday, Tan and Lor pleaded guilty to using criminal force to prevent 23-year-old MBSA officer Nurul Ain Isa from carrying out her duty at Bukit Rahman Putra, Sungai Buloh.

The incident came to light when a video of the incident went viral on social media last week, drawing an angry response from Netizens.

In the two-minute video, both Tan and Lor were seen boxing Nurul Ain into a space between two cars, preventing her from leaving the scene.

Tan could also be seen holding onto Nurul Ain’s uniform almost the entire duration of the video.
