wounded security.guard confronts assailant's family

KUALA LUMPUR: A security guard who lost an index finger in a slashing attack confronted the family of his assailant who was sentenced to a year in jail.

Mohd Al-Hafiz Abdullah expressed his frustration to the accused's mother and brother who had also attended the proceeding, saying that while Pravin Lionel Proctor would be jailed a year, he would be lacking a finger for his entire life.

Student Pravin, 32, was found guilty of slashing 27-year-old Mohd Al-Hafiz Abdullah on the neck, back, arms and legs with a meat cleaver at the National Hockey Stadium in Bukit Jalil at 9.05pm on Sep 23, 2010.

Counsel Raja Gopal pleaded for leniency, saying Pravin, had tried to turn his life around and was volunteering at a local church and at a non-government organisation (NGO) for single parents in Malacca.

DPP Shashitah Mohamad Hanifa asked for a deterrent sentence, saying the victim had been severely wounded in the attack.

Sessions judge Rozilah Salleh denied counsel's request for a stay of execution, sentencing Pravin a year's prison starting Friday.
