An Indonesian national who attacked three Malaysians in a flat 22 years ago was sentenced to four years' jail and seven strokes of the cane on Tuesday for causing grievous hurt to one of the victims.

Khairul, 45, now a religious teacher, was 24 at the time. He pleaded guilty to slashing Mr Lim Bu Chuan, 23, on the neck at about 2am at a flat in Block 362, Clementi Avenue 2 on Sept 26, 1992.

Mr Lim became paralysed as a result, and died in Malaysia on Feb 9, 1993 from respiratory failure.

Assistant Public Prosecutor Lydia Goh told the court that Khairul had been attending a refresher course in Singapore at the time of the incident.
