Man charged for hitting sister with a stick



MELAKA --- "As an older brother, you should be protecting your sister, not hit her. The court deems that a heavier sentence is necessary as a lesson to you." said Magistrate Mohd Asri Abd Rahman Sidik.

The accused, Khairul Nizar Amir Hamzah, 34, who pleaded guilty to the charge of causing hurt to his sister, was sentenced to a jail term of 11 months.

According to the charge, the accused had purposely hurt the victim with a piece of wood in the incident that happened at midnight on 20 March 2016, at Jalan Pengkalan Jajar, Kampung Alai, Malacca.

The accused lost his temper after he his father had scolded him for his drug addiction. The accused pushed and punched his father until the latter fell down.

The accused's sister who tried to fend for her father was also hit by the accused, with a piece of wood.
Their father then suffered a heart attack.

The accused was charged according to Section 324 of the Penal Code for voluntarily causing hurt to the victim.

Deputy public prosecutor Norshazwani Ishak requested for a sentencing that would serve as a deterrence as violence against women have been frequent.

The accused pleaded for a lower sentence as he is divorcee and has to care for his three children as well as his parents.

In the same proceedings, the accused was also fined RM 6,000 after he pleaded guilty for failing to produce his identification card during police checks. If he fails to pay the fine, the accused will be faced with an additional jail term of 12 months.
