Sentenced Man Flies into Rage
DENPASAR ~ A defendant flew into a rage in a Denpasar courtroom when a judge sentenced him to seven years in jail, an official said.
According to witnesses, Ahyar Safrudin, who was charged with selling his child, kicked a trashcan and abused the judge during a session last Wednesday.
They said he screamed at court officers and accused police of discriminating against him.
“Even if I am sentenced to death, I’m not scared as long as the person who took my daughter is also jailed. It is impossible that I sold my own child,” Safrudin screamed.
Safrudin was restrained by officers until he collapsed.
Prosecutor Gusti Nyoman Widan, said the sentence was lighter than the 10 years he had requested.Filed under: The Island
