A 32-year-old security guard, who was found guilty of a double murder, laughed when he was sentenced to death by the Shah Alam High Court on Tuesday, 12 November
According to a report in Sinar Harian, the accused, Mohd Ferdaus Suwardi, was talking to himself when he was being sentenced by the High Court judge Justice Datuk Ab Karim Ab Rahman.
Justice Ab Karim found Mohd Ferdaus guilty of murdering two of his colleagues in 2017.
In his judgement, he said the defence failed to raise any reasonable doubt, therefore the accused had been sentenced under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder.
Justice Ab Karim said that while the accused had an anti-social personality disorder and substance abuse problems, he was still sensible enough to be aware that his actions were wrong
"When he was committing the crime, the accused knew that there was no one at the scene and he locked the door, knowing that the two victims were asleep," Sinar Harian quoted him as saying.
“The accused then left the scene and returned to his village to admit to his mother what he had done.”
He committed the crime between 6.30am to 9am on 31 July 2017
While the crime was committed on 31 July, the victims were only found on 4 August, when the two guards at a chicken processing factory were found dead with slash marks on their body.
A total of 20 prosecution and defence witnesses were called to 74 exhibits submitted during the trial that went on for eight months, Sinar Harian reported.
