The Attorney-General's Chambers is seeking a heavier penalty for the couple who harrassed a Shah Alam City Council.
The couple, Lor Ka Hoo 35, and Tan Sit Fun, 30, were on Friday sentenced to 14 days in jail and fined RM3,000 each after they pleaded guilty to using force to prevent a civil servant from doing her job.
They were released on RM2,000 bail each pending their appeal against the sentencing.
Attorney-general Mohamed Apandi Ali said the sentence is "manifestly inadequate" given the gravity of the offence.
“Despite the two accused having pleaded guilty, the appropriate sentence must still be imposed in order to teach (them) a lesson.
"(They must be) made an example to others not to commit such acts,” he said in a statement.
In the two-minute video, which has been shared more than 27,000 times on Facebook, a woman is shown grabbing the back of the enforcer's uniform, refusing to let her go while repeatedly asking, "Give me your name".
The MBSA officer, identified as Nurul Ain Isa, was also stopped from leaving by a man who planted himself on the other side of her, effectively trapping her between two parked cars.
The man appeared to be trying to take pictures of Nurul Ain as she tried to get the woman to let go of her uniform and leave.
"Look, you're the one who made my arm red," the woman said, her hand still grabbing the enforcer's uniform.
Other MBSA enforcers tried to get the couple to let go of her, even providing the Nurul Ain's name to them but to no avail.
Nurul Ain finally managed to squeeze herself between the cars and leave with her fellow enforcers, though the man trailed after them, insisting on taking at least one picture of her.- Mkini
