Chan Khiam Wei was charged in court yesterday for attempting to commit suicide on 2 January 2007. The 34-year-old mechanic was by the loss of his brother that he attempted to hang himself in his room.

Chan’s wife, Sam Chow Chee, aged 25, found him and alerted neighbours, who helped to cut the rope that he used to tie himself. Civil defence and police officers reached his house and tried to stop him, but Chan tried to prevent them with a parang.

Chan has been fined RM2,000 and defaulted two months’ jail.
