KUALA LUMPUR: An Indonesian salesman was sentenced to five months’ jail by the Ampang magistrate’s court here today for voluntarily causing hurt on a traffic policeman last week.
Magistrate Mohamad Firdaus Sadina Ali handed down the sentence on Nasir Saalun, 28, who pleaded guilty to the charge.
He was ordered to serve the jail sentence from the date of arrest, which was last Jan 22.
