Former Selangor menteri besar Dr Mohamad Khir Toyo ‎was sentenced to 12 months’ jail for abusing his power while in office to purchase a land and a bungalow in 2007.
Federal Court judge Tan Sri Zulkefli Ahmad Makinudin, who delivered the verdict, also upheld the decision of the lower court to forfeit the property.
He said community service as suggested by lawyer Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah was not appropriate in this case.
He said Dr Khir as public servant had abused his position to buy the property with inadequate consideration.
Khir could apply for a pardon‎ before the Sultan Selangor.
Last week, the apex court dismissed Dr Khir’s appeal when the bench affirmed the conviction of the lower courts.
Judge Tan Sri Jeffrey Tan Kok Hwa, who delivered the unanimous ruling of the five-man bench, said the prosecution had proven its case beyond reasonable doubt.
“All the ingredients of the charge had been proved, including whether he was a public servant,” he said in delivering the unanimous verdict.
