Ex-MyWatch chairman wins appeal against blackmail conviction

A former Malaysian Crime Watch Task Force (MyWatch) chairman R Sri Sanjeevan has won his last appeal against the conviction he received for blackmailing an entrepreneur years ago.

Three-member Court of Appeal panel chaired by Justice Ahmad Nasfy Yasin said Sanjeevan 38, who was denied an impartial trial, which resulted in a wrongful miscarriage of justice.

The reason for this is that the prosecution was not able to invite seven witnesses present at the scene to give evidence, nor were they provided to Sanjeevan after he was compelled to defend himself,report by slot machine online.

The verdict is unjust and must be struck down as the judge stated. Nasfy who was sitting with justices Ahmad Zaidi Zainal and Mariana Yahya, said the High Court also erred when ruling in favor of a magistrate, who incorrectly placed a heavier burden of evidence on Sanjeevan.

The magistrate ruled that Sanjeevan had for proof using the basis of a probability balance. But lawyer V Sithambaram had earlier this morning that the defense needed only to raise an unfounded doubt about defense of the prosecutor's argument. We consider the greater burden on the appellant is fatal, he said.

Nasfy stated that the identity of Sanjeevan in the dock by witnesses from the prosecution during the trial was uncertain. (That) isn't a positive identification, he added.

Sithambaram who helped with S Preakas and Miguel Sequerah He had claimed that there was no parade of identification was held. Nasfy added that the officer investigating the case did not take an account from Sanjeevan or investigate the matter.

On April 28 Sanjeevan received permission from the Court of Appeal to hear the issues raised by his appeal following nine legal issues were considered. The leave was required because this matter was originally brought before the magistrates court.

On the 27th of November 20th, 2020 On the 27th of November, 2020, the High Court dismissed Sanjeevan's appeal. Sanjeevan was directed to begin his sentence of confinement after the stay of execution was denied.
