the mosque indeed gave a detailed account of what happened in the last couple of years ...... must read the background of the case

headline is misleading if without further details

Sometime we judge to make the system fair ......
and not be abuse.....

How to judge with compassion , if he is jailed
for 1 year , who feed his mum then ?

Cannot this case be judge with compassion but then
it open another floodgate to encourage stealing again ...

Such irony!

Please read about the multiple chances extended to this individual by the mosque. As mentioned earlier, the title of this post is really misleading if you do not know the context.

Glad to read about the response from the Mosque.
Title : Mosque speaks up in S$32 theft case
By :
Date : 20 January 2012 2028 hrs (SST)
URL : http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/ ... 71/1/.html

SINGAPORE: A man, who was sentenced on Thursday to a year's jail for stealing S$32 from a mosque, had been helped by the same mosque for the last three years.

In a media statement to Channel NewsAsia, Darussalam Mosque said Noraizam Abdullah had been caught committing offences on several occasions since he sought refuge in the mosque in 2008.

The mosque heard that the 40-year-old man used to live with his sister but was asked to leave after a family dispute.

He then sought refuge at the mosque and was later offered a job there as an assistant caretaker.

However, he was caught threatening the mosque staff, hurling vulgarities and acting aggressively towards them.

In addition, he was also found asking the staff and members of his congregation for money.

Darussalam Mosque said Noraizam still continued with his mischief despite undergoing repeated counselling by staff.

The last straw was when he was caught stealing from a donation box.

The mosque said that a police report was made to protect the safety of its staff and congregants.

Noraizam had previously said in court that he stole money to feed his family, including his handicapped mother.

In response, the mosque said it is currently looking into this and would extend necessary assistance if needed.

yAP 3boys got it - he will do it again when he is release from jail..
have deal with some hardcore people like them.....
need Patience of a Saint ...
there seem to be no return for them, their family in constant misery..
they dont seem to know how to live otherwise :gloomy:
life is a big mess for them though many have help until they give up

at least the mosque can look after the mother ?
