Man’s 17-year jail term upheld



KUALA LUMPUR --- A former bus driver who tried to burn his girlfriend with an inflammable liquid lost his appeal at the High Court.

Mohamad Saiful Mohamad Azmi’s 17-year jail sentence for attempted murder was upheld.

The 32-year-old was found guilty by a lower court for attempting to murder Dayang Adizaizimah Awang, 38, at the Teratai Mewah apartment in Setapak at about 3.30am on March 30, 2012.

Yesterday, High Court judge Justice Azman Abdullah said the appellant had failed to raise a reasonable doubt when he reversed the story that the victim wanted to burn her body with petrol and used the lighter for the purpose.

“If it is true the victim wants to burn herself, why did she cry profusely when she testified in court over his cruelty when he chased her while splashing petrol and burning her?” he asked.

On the sentence, Justice Azman said he had considered the suffering of the victim who had gone through pain and surgeries due to the incident.

Justice Azman said he was satisfied with the grounds given by the Sessions Court judge which was in accordance to the cruelty inflicted on the victim.

A Sessions Court had on Nov 12, 2013, sentenced Mohamad Saiful to 17 years jail. The victim had suffered 27% burns on her body.
