Fadley Faisal

A local man was indicted in the Magistrate’s Court yesterday with a charge of trafficking 1.2 kilogrammes of methylamphetamine or syabu.

Senior Magistrate Azimah Abdul Rahman did not take the plea from Mas Fadillah bin Ibrahim, 32, on the charge as DPP Affyian Abdul Rahman informed the court that the analysis on the drugs is still ongoing, and the report is needed to finalise the charge against the defendant.

Mas Fadillah is represented by defence counsel Pengiran Khairual Nizam bin Pengiran Haji Mohd Yassin of Messrs Yusof Halim & Partners.

The court adjourned the case to July 23 while the defendant was ordered to remain remanded.
