Another Confusing Court Decision.

The disadvantage of not being a lawyer is, when we come across cases like this, we are more or less dumbfounded. When the headline reads 'Fined RM15,000 for swindling RM80,000' the immediate reaction is "this can't be fair".

In the first place it gives the impression that in Malaysia crime actually does pay. Frankly lots and lots of people won't mind swindling, say 80 million ringgit, and paying RM15 million fine. That is a cool 65 million to blow up for several lifetimes. Secondly it shows that the law is an ass and the dispensers of justice are either tied down by rigid sentencing policies or could not be too concerned about the implications.

Perhaps someone knowledgeable in the intricacies of matters legal could enlighten us. In the meanwhile, read about Mr. Gan Ah Hwa's disappointment with our judicial system.

If you want to know the reality of the matter, Mr. Gan is lucky he did not end up getting prosecuted for bribery and / or tht his con man did not get off scot free altogether.

I bet when it comes to Legal Costs of pursuing the case (which can be substantial) Mr. Gan also comes out of his own pocket.

So in the end, who wins? Lawyers and corrupted judges.
