who is sam ke ting files appeal against conviction sentencing in the basikal lajak case

Sam Ke Ting, 27, was sentenced to six years in prison on April 13 for causing the deaths of eight teenage bikers. The incident, known as the “Basikal Lajak” case, occurred five years ago. At 3 AM, Sam was driving down a route in Johor when she crashed with the group. The woman was acquitted twice at Magistrate’s Court. The decision of the Johor Bahru High Court, however, was overruled. Sam Te’s six-year imprisonment, as well as an RM6,000 fine, began Tuesday. However, many Malaysians, including local celebrities, are disappointed by the decision.

After the prosecution won their second appeal against the Magistrate’s Court judgment to acquit and dismiss the 27-year-old lady in October, High Court Judge Datuk Abu Bakar Katar made the judgment. On February 18, 2017, Sam was charged with reckless or hazardous driving after eight cyclists were killed on Jalan Lingkaran Dalam in Johor Baru. Sam was also sentenced to six months in prison if she did not pay an RM6,000 fine, as well as being barred from driving for three years after her prison sentence was completed.

In his ruling, Abu Bakar stated that the Magistrate’s Court erred by failing to rule on the respondent’s defense without having the respondent testify under oath. In her defense, Sam, a clerk, said that she did not see the group of cyclists at the scene of the incident and there were other vehicles that hit the deceased bicycles and drove away. It is reported that this version had never been raised by the respondent during the prosecution case.

Before sentencing the woman, the judge said that she should have driven carefully instead of driving fast which eventually caused the incident, and added that she should have realized that the area’s lightning was not bright. Sam was found guilty of causing death by careless driving under Section 41(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987 (Act 333) when she rammed into a group of youths riding modified bicycles on Jalan Lingkaran Dalam in Johor Bahru at 3:30 AM on February 18, 2017.

The High Court’s decision has brought relief and thanks to the families of the adolescents involved in the incident. However, many people are bashing the verdict. On behalf of Sam Ke Ting, more than 700,000 signatures have been contributed to online petitions, so far. Following the decision, four petitions were established on Change.org, two of which had surpassed the 300,000 signature mark as of 1 PM on Thursday. Follow for more latest updates.
