25 Aug – It looks like Farid Kamil is safe from his prison sentence, after it was substituted with a RM5,500 penalty instead by the court.
The actor, who was charged for deterring a policeman from discharging his duty and conducting himself inappropriately in a police station three years ago, was originally imposed in June last year - with the magistrate Nor Ariffin Hisham giving him a 13-month jail term.
The court has now ordered that Farid is to pay RM5,000 in fines for using criminal force in place of the prison term, and the four-month's jail for disorderly conduct to a RM500 fine.
On January 2018, Farid was charged with committing both offences against Constable Muhammad Nizam Jamaluddin at the Kota Damansara police station. He was also charged with causing hurt to Nizam and a member of the public, Asyraf Ahmad.
Judicial Commissioner Nurulhuda Nur'aini stated that the decision was made after taking into account that the appellant had paid compensations to the two persons involved.
Farid's Datukship was revoked by the Sultan of Pahang earlier this year, which many believed to have been linked to his previous conviction.
