Eleanor Hawkins and her three companions have been sentenced to three days in jail and fined £1,000 for posing naked on a sacred Malaysian mountain, as they have already been detained since Tuesday however, the custodial sentence is deemed served.
She admitted the offence during her short court appearance earlier this morning alongside three others – Canadian siblings Danielle and Lindsey Petersen, and Dylan Snel from the Netherlands.
She confirmed her name and was then read out the charge that at 6.45am on 30 May she had committed an “obscene act in a public place to the annoyance of others”.
According to Sky News Asia Correspondent Mark Stone, who was in court, Miss Hawkins “was very quick” to plead guilty. The other three tourists then also entered guilty pleas.
