JOHOR BAHARU: A Johor Darul Takzim (JDT) fan of Malaysian nationality pleaded guilty for misconduct outside the Jalan Stadium Besar and sentenced to one week imprisonment, The Straits Times' website reported.
Mohamed Kamal Basha, 27 was charged for ravaging the police line and threatening the security guard in the incident on May 20.
He was said to be adamant despite numerous warnings to retreat. Mohamed Kamil claimed that he wanted to help his friends who acted violently upon being barred from entering the stadium during the JDT-Singapore Lions XII match.
They were reported to have purchased tickets which were allocated for Singaporean fans from a man who sold to them through the Internet.
Mohamed Kamil initially pleaded not guilty and was granted bail. He was reported to have stayed at his relative’s house in that republic.
He was among the five JDT fans who were arrested by the Singaporean police force outside the stadium. The other four had served their prison sentence seven days after pleading guilty on May 31.
The prosecution urged the court to impose stricter sentences to them because of their potential belligerent acts and also for the fact that they were stubborn and not willing to listen to the higher authorities.
The prosecution also plead that the court takes into consideration the riots that took place in Little India in Singapore last December and argued that the same incident might recur.
It has been reported that the Johor UMNO Youth intends to assist Mohamed Kamil with his legal fees and living cost while NGO SukaGuam will step in to assist in legislation matters.
