ABSTRACT
The author comments on a court case involving two Indonesian brothers who were sentenced to death by the Shah Alam High Court in Malaysia for fighting off a burglar, who later died in the altercation. The author claims the court's decision has raised public pressure on the judiciary, which is already plagued with inconsistent and questionable court sentencing. The author believes society sees harshness for the brothers and the inconsistencies as a source of concern.
