ALIFF AZIZ FACES JAIL TERM, FOUND UNSUITABLE FOR MANDATORY TREATMENT ORDER

2166

Entertainer Mohamad Aliff Aziz faces a possible jail term after being found unsuitable for Mandatory Treatment Order (MTO), which is a treatment to address their mental conditions instead of jail term.

Aliff Aziz pleaded guilty to one count of theft and an unrelated charge of behaving in a disorderly manner in public.

Earlier last month, his defence lawyer, Mr Murali Pillai, who is acting as Aliff’s lawyer, requested for a mandatory treatment order suitability report and added that Aliff regrets his actions and that he was under a psychiatric condition.

The troubled entertainer has been plagued with numerous brushes with the law.

He will be sentenced on Tuesday.

Offenders convicted of theft can be jailed for up to seven years and fined.

First-time offenders convicted of behaving in a disorderly manner in public can be jailed for up to six months and fined up to $2,000. Repeat offenders can be jailed for up to a year and fined up to $5,000.
