Actress-model on drug charge
PETALING JAYA: Local model and actress Zarina Anjoulie Mohamad Fahizul has been charged with having two pills suspected to be dangerous drugs.
Zarina, 26, who is also a college student, pleaded not guilty to having the drugs, suspected of being Erimin 5 pills weighing 0.6g, at a residence in Damansara Damai here at 5.30pm on Dec 30.
Also charged yesterday was college student Mohamad Fakhruzaim Mohamad Fawzi, 27, who is suspected of committing the offence with Zarina at the same time and place.
The two were charged at the magistrate’s court under section 12(2) of the Dangerous Drugs Act, which carries a penalty of up to five years’ jail, a fine, or both.
Zarina, who came to court in a dark grey t-shirt and red pants, looked calm when the charge was read out to her.
DPP Wan Mohd Bukhari Wan Mohd offered bail of RM6,000 with one surety for each offender.
Lawyer Mohd Haijan Omar, who represented the pair, asked for a lower bail to be imposed, saying his clients were still studying.
Magistrate Nazri Omran allowed bail of RM2,000 each with one surety and fixed Feb 8 for next mention date.
Zarina has acted in television dramas such as Anak Pontianak, as well as films such as Ular and Khon Malay.
