KUANTAN, July 22 — Siti Fairrah Ashykin Kamaruddin, better known as Kiki, the woman who gained notoriety after she was filmed hammering an elderly man’s vehicle with a steering lock, was fined RM5,000 or in default three months’ jail, local daily the Star reported today.
The Sessions Court also ordered her to do 240 hours of community work.
According to the Star, in delivering sentencing, Session judge Zainal Abidin Kamarudin reminded the accused to uphold her good name as she was a lady and well-educated.
Zainal Abidin said the accused was very lucky that the victim Sim Siak Hong was a good man and did not wish to pursue the matter.
Siti Fairrah, who broke down during mitigation, had earlier pleaded guilty to the charge under Section 427 of the Penal Code, which carries a jail term of up to two years or a fine or both, the Star reported.
She was said to have committed the offence at the parking lot of UTC, Jalan Sekilau in Kuantan on July 14 at about 1.10pm.
A social media storm erupted after the video documenting her verbally abusing Sim and hitting his car with a steering lock was uploaded on video-sharing site YouTube.
