A BUSINESSMAN who put up banners of escaped Jemaah Islamiah detainee Mas Selamat Kastari without permission was fined a total of $3,000 yesterday.

But Zeng Guoyan chose to go to jail for three weeks instead of paying the fine of $1,000, the maximum, on each of the three charges.

The 56-year-old was convicted by District Judge Jasbendar Kaur after a six-day trial.
