KUCHING: A 29-year-old man, Losion, was sentenced to four months’ jail and fined RM1,000 by the Magistrate’s Court here yesterday for injuring his wife.

Losion, a resident of Kampung Sadir and currently unemployed, pleaded guilty to the charge under Section 323 of the Penal Code read together with Section 326A of the same code.

He was found guilty of intentionally causing harm to his 30-year-old wife from Indonesia at a longhouse in Kampung Sadir, Jalan Puncak Borneo, around 11 pm on April 27, 2024.

Magistrate Syarifah Fatimah Azura Wan Ali presided over the case and ordered the accused to serve an additional month in jail if he failed to pay the fine.

According to the facts presented in court, the incident stemmed from an argument between Losion and his wife over financial matters. Losion, dissatisfied with the RM200 given to him by his wife, demanded more money by any means necessary. His wife expressed reluctance to borrow money from neighbors due to concerns about repayment.

In a fit of rage during the argument, Losion physically assaulted his wife, punching her in the face, kicking her multiple times, and throwing a chair at her. As a result, she sustained bruises on her back and left eye.

Fearing for her safety, the victim promptly reported the incident to the police, leading to Losion’s arrest.

Prosecuting Officer Inspector Ammarsoffi Yusoff handled the case, while the accused was not represented by legal counsel.
