SEREMBAN, July 30 — A policeman pleaded not guilty to six charges in the Magistrate’s Court here today before three different magistrates.
In the court before Magistrate Mohamad Izwan Mohamed Noh, Inspector Mohd Azuan Yasin, 32, was charged with two counts for voluntarily causing grievous hurt and committing criminal intimidation on one Mohamaed Nadzeem Zainal Larifin, 25, with a black object which looked like a pistol at about 2.50am at the lobby of Hotel S2 here last July 17.
He was also charged with committing the similar offences on one Koh Wen Gio, 32, also using a similar black object, at the same place and time before Magistrate Haslina Basarudin.
Mohd Azuan was also charged before Mohamad Izwan with committing mischief by smashing the windscreen of car belonging to one Tan Chee Luan, 25, at a coffee shop in Temiang at about 5.45am on the same day.
He was also brought before Magistrate S. Megaswary and was charged with another count of committing mischief by ripping the door of a car belonging to one Tan Chee Hold at the same time and place.
Mohd Azuan was allowed bail of RM4,500 for all the charges, with one surety for each charge, and all the cases were fixed for mention on September 13.
Mohamad Izwan and Haslina also ordered the footage of a recording from a closed circuit television camera (CCTV), which had been posted on YouTube with the title “Polis Memukul Pekerja Hotel di Seremban (Police Assaulting a Hotel Worker in Seremban)”, be removed from the website immediately to avoid prejudice against the accused.
