Man acquitted for murder of woman who was slashed and stabbed more than 110 times, but brother will still hang

Man acquitted for murder of woman who was slashed and stabbed more than 110 times, but brother will still hang

IT WAS a dramatic scene in the Court of Appeal that saw investigators take a rap from Justice V.K. Rajah for "several serious lapses". Yet, at the end of it all, the only thing that mattered for Mr Ismil Kadar (above) was that he had escaped the death penalty - he was a free man. He was given a discharge amounting to an acquittal as his brother Muhammad Kadar was found solely responsible for killing Madam Tham Weng Kuen at her Boon Lay flat on May 6, 2005, while robbing her. She had been stabbed and slashed more than 110 times. More in The New Paper today (July 6).
