The Sessions Court has found Corporal Jenain Subi guilty of causing the death of 15-year-old Aminulrasyid Amzah last year.
I can’t remember when the last time was a cop was found guilty in such a police shooting case.
But I do remember all the allegations that the police levelled against Aminulrasyid – allegations that tarnished the deceased lad’s name – in the aftermath of his death. Were these allegations ever proven?
Jenain was charged under section 304(a) (culpable homicide) of the Penal Code, which carries a maximum jail sentence of 30 years. He was sentenced to five years jail, according to lawyer N Surendrann in a tweet.
Isn’t it about time the federal government implements the recommendation of the Royal Commission: that is, an independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission?
