Ampang man jailed for clobbering, debasing wife, terrorising children

KUALA LUMPUR (25/02/2017): An office assistant who punched, stomped on and splashed his wife with water was sentenced to 10 months in prison by the Ampang magistrate's court here yesterday. 

Magistrate Haslinda A Raof handed down the sentence on Ahmad Syafiq Abdul Halim, 25, after he pleaded guilty to voluntarily causing hurt to his wife, also aged 25. He was ordered to serve the sentence from the date of his arrest, which was Feb 20. 

The offence was committed in a flat at Pandan Jaya here, at 6pm last Feb 20. The charge, under Section 323 of the Penal Code, provides for imprisonment of up to one year, or a fine of up to RM2,000, with whipping, upon conviction. 

According to the facts of the case, on the day of the incident, a misunderstanding arose between the couple, which led to the accused punching the victim on her back and drenching her with water after dragging her to the bathroom. 

Ahmad Syafiq then dragged his wife to the living room, pushed her to the floor and stomped on her back and hands. The accused also kicked the victim and chased her and their two children, aged two years and four months, out of the house. 

Earlier, deputy public prosecutor Raihanah Abdul Razak urged for appropriate punishment against the accused to serve as a lesson, taking into account public interest. 

She said the accused should be protecting his wife instead of causing her harm in such a manner. In mitigation, the accused said he was remorseful and regretted his actions. -- BERNAMA
