THE prosecution in a case of domestic violence has applied for adjournment before a plea is taken.
DPP Norjauinah Hj Kula informed Magistrate Hajah Ervy Sufitriana Hj Abd Rahman that 29-year-old defendant Mohamad Noor Hazwani bin Joini is facing a charge of causing hurt to his 31-year-old wife by hitting her face and her entire body at a house in Kg Peramu at about 2.30pm on November 13.
The prosecution had only just received the victim’s medical report yesterday, and needed time to pursue the case.
In an earlier mention of the case on Thursday, the prosecution informed the court the victim had sustained injuries to the point that she required surgeries.
The defendant faces a penalty of jail of up to three years and a fine.
Magistrate Hajah Ervy yesterday released the defendant on court bail of $5,000 or in one local surety with restrictions of contacting or communicating with the victim or their children.
The case was fixed for further mention on November 29.
