An online cosmetics dealer was sentenced to 24 months' jail and fined RM100,000 by the Sessions Court here today after being found guilty of operating an unlicensed dental company and carrying out procedures to install fake braces.
Judge Harmi Thamri Mohamad @ Shaharuddin sentenced Fatin Nabilah Mohamad Hassan, 26, after the defence failed to prove reasonable doubt on the prosecution's case.
The court ordered Fatin Nabilah, who was absent from court today, to serve a jail term from the date she reports herself to the prison and to serve another 12 months jail if she failed to pay the fine.
The court also rejected the application by lawyer Khairul Amin Abdullah who represented Fatin Nabilah to postpone the imprisonment and ordered Fatin Nabilah to pay the fine immediately.
Khairul Amin told the court that his client was unable to attend as she was undergoing acupuncture treatment at the Melaka Hospital for a slipped disc recently.
