In respect of Count 5, I sentence him to a term of 3 months imprisonment which I suspend for a period of 2 years and a fine of SR1,500.
 In default of payment of the total fine of SR3,000 the accused shall serve 3 months imprisonment. The 1st accused is to pay the fine of SR 3,000 by 30th September 2016.
