Karpal didapati bersalah kerana menghasut.. Satu lagi PRK?


Peguam veteran Karpal Singh hari ini didapati bersalah mengeluarkan kata-kata berunsur hasutan terhadap Sultan Perak semasa krisis perlembagaan pada 2009.

Hakim Mahkamah Tinggi Azman Abdullah berkata, pihak pembelaan gagal menimbulkan keraguan munasabah dalam kes pendakwaan.

Pasukan peguam Karpal menggesa Azman menangguhkan hukuman ke hari lain bagi mereka menyediakan mitigasi untuk mendapatkan hukuman yang lebih ringan.

Karpal, 73, yang juga pengerusi DAP, juga berisiko hilang kelayakan sebagai Ahli Parlimen kerana kesalahan itu membawa sehingga denda berjumlah RM5, 000 atau penjara tiga tahun atau kedua-duanya sekali jika sabit kesalahan.. Lapor The Malaysian Insider

Sementara itu The Star Online pula melaporkan...

KUALA LUMPUR: The High Court has found lawyer and DAP national chairman Karpal Singh guilty of sedition for questioning the removal of Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin as Perak mentri besar by the Sultan of Perak.  
Justice Azman Abdullah handed down the decision Friday after finding that Karpal had failed to prove reasonable doubt against his case.  
The court later fixed March 7 for sentencing and mitigation. 
Karpal was charged with uttering seditious words against the Sultan of Perak at his legal firm in Jalan Pudu Lama in Kuala Lumpur, between noon and 12.30pm on Feb 6, 2009.  
He was alleged to have said that the removal of Mohammad Nizar as mentri besar by the Sultan could be questioned in a court of law.  
The charge under section 4(1)(b) of the Sedition Act carries a maximum RM5,000 fine or three years' jail, or both on conviction.  
On June 11, 2010, the High Court had acquitted Karpal without calling for his defence but the decision was reversed by the Court of Appeal on Jan 20, 2012.

... Bersamalah kita nantikan samada akan ada satu lagi PRK atau tidak pada 7 Mac ini...
