A lovelorn Burmese engineer jailed for two years for forcibly stealing a kiss from his fiancee has had his sentence commuted to three months after a plea from his lawyer. Than Lwin, 37, was sentenced to two years' jail and three strokes of the cane by Judge Doris Lai last Friday after admitting restraining and kissing his Burmese fiancee, 29, in public by force. He decided not to appeal, but Chief Justice Yong Pung How decided to review the case at the defence's request. The chief justice said Than had been charged under a law normally used against those who tried to cause death, hurt, wrongful restraint or fear in order to molest a victim, while this was more a lovers' tiff. It is the first time in Singapore that a Supreme Court judge has used revisionary powers in this fashion.
