A Macau court on Tuesday levied a fine of $5,000 on the territory's youngest lawmaker, but no jail time, at the conclusion of a trial viewed as a test case of transparency and conflict of interest in the world's biggest gambling hub.

Macau law provides for Sou to be stripped of his duties as a legislator if he spends more than 30 days in jail.
