THE Ampang Sessions Court today acquitted and discharged Sungai Besar Umno chief Jamal Md Yunos of two counts of uploading offensive videos on Facebook two years ago.
Judge Wan Mohd Norisham Wan Yaakob made the decision after the prosecution failed to prove a prima facie case against Jamal.
Jamal, 52, was charged with uploading two videos on his Facebook page with the intention of insulting others at Taman Dagang Avenue, Ampang, viewed at noon on August 20, 2020.,
He was alleged to have uploaded the videos at 10am and 3pm the previous day.
The charge, under section 233(1)(a) of the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission Act 1998 provides for a maximum fine of RM50,000 or a jail term of not exceeding one year, or both.
Deputy public prosecutor Aiza Ali Raman prosecuted, while Jamal was represented by Mohd Hafizuddin Khan Norkhan.
The prosecution closed its case last month after calling three witnesses in the trial that began in May last year. – Bernama, August 10, 2022.
