Trial of woman who ran amok at PM's office set for Feb 25
PUTRAJAYA: The Sessions Court here has set four days from Feb 25 for the trial of a woman who allegedly ran amok with a samurai sword in front of the Prime Minister's office in July last year.
Judge Mohamed Kamil Nizam set the new trial dates after deputy public prosecutor Nadia Izhar informed him that Muhdalena Ahmad's lawyer, M. Visvanathan, was still unwell.
She told the court that Visvanathan, who did not attend court today, had requested for the trial to be postponed. Mohamed Kamil then fixed Feb 25 to 28 for the trial.
The judge also requested Muhdalena to inform her lawyer to write in using Form 28A, a form required to be submitted to the court with regard to his client's application to plea-bargain on the criminal charges against her.
Muhdalena, 28, from Kota Damansara, is facing four charges under the Penal Code, the Corrosive and Explosive Substances and Offensive Weapons Act 1958 and the Restricted Area and Prohibited Places Act 1959.
She is accused of criminal intimidation with intent to cause grievous hurt to an auxiliary police personnel, L/Corp Ridzuan Megat Ahmad, in the vicinity of Complex B of the Prime Minister's Department at 2.30 pm on July 9, 2012. - Bernama
