Hmmm....food for thought. Wonder how the authorities will respond to this. Or has the penalty gone up for offences like that? One in 2005 and the other 2008. :scratchhead:

maybe in this case, the judge took into consideration that the highly skilled plastic surgeon could have easily alter the look of another person to look exactly like him , so no point sending him/ imposter to the cell :-)

Can't believe he said something about "many people similarly would not think this is an offence". HUh?? A highly qualified surgeon like him did not know making others take the rap is an offence?

Hope a heavier penalty will be meted out to him soon. That will send out the message that everyone is equal when it comes to the law.
