KUALA LUMPUR: A teenager was ordered to perform 240 hours of community service by the Magistrate’s Court here today, for injuring his sister and threatening his mother and elder brother, last November.
Magistrate Nur’Aminahtul Mardiah Md Nor made the decision when Nizam Aqmal Rusli, 19, pleaded guilty to a charge of injuring his sister, Nurul Atiqah, 27, using his hand and helmet.
He also pleaded guilty to the second charge of threatening his mother, Rubiah Samin, 45, and his brother Noor Aliff Rusli, 24, using a samurai sword. Nur’Aminahtul Mardiah ordered the teenager to carry out the community service within a year, under Section 293(1)(e) of the Criminal Procedure Code, as he is a young offender.
Nizam Aqmal also received four additional conditions namely attending counseling session together with the family once a month, reporting to the police station once a month, undergoing urine tests randomly and being
disallowed to be outside his residential area from midnight to 6 am, within one year.
The court also imposed a bond without collateral to the accused, amounting to RM1,000.
He committed both offences at his mother’s house at Blok G2, Level 1A, Kepong Police Station here at 11.30 am on Nov 11, 2015 under Section 324 of the Penal Code and Section 506 of the same code.
In mitigation, Nizam Aqmal’s counsel, Mohamed Shamril Afzan Mohamed Hasim urged the court to impose the community service as he was a young offender, aged 18, during the incident.
He said the accused had repented and promised not to repeat his offence.
According to the fact sheet, the accused had informed his mother that he was suffering from gastritis and wanted to take medicine. His mother asked him to eat rice first, but he refused to do so and messed up the food.
The accused’s sister and brother then advised him before he became angry and fought with the sister.
The suspect also threatened his mother and brother using the samurai sword, which belonged to his late father.
