I for one am SHOCKED that a country with fanatic religious ties/leaders that have corrupted the government would ever do something shady.  Simply Shocked.

Well, the sentencing did in fact come after the acquittal (just not directly), so the headline is technically correct.  The best kind of correct.

It's Malaysia.  They don't have protections against double jeopardy.  Same thing in Italy, and the Amanda Knox continuing trial saga.

I really wonder how things are going to play out over there.  UMNO (political party that makes up the bulk of the ruling Barisan National coalition) is getting more Malay nationalist, and the racial tensions are building.  If oil prices ever crash like they did in the late 1980s-early 1990s, watch out because government revenue from oil may be the only thing holding them together.

Oh, I came here to say... "It sure looks like they want him out of the way".

If the State wants you out of the way, you're out of the way.  How you go is pretty much up to you.  Jail, exile, assassination.

Sometimes, in situations such as these, you've just got to turn the other cheek.

The typical Malaysian is pretty loose with his religion. Calling the whole country fanatical is a bit ignorant. If they were truly as you say, this dude would have been stoned to death following the trial. Instead he gets five years, which sucks of course, but it beats being stoned to death.
