A member of the uniformed services, booked on charges of outraging the modesty of an underaged girl, yesterday introduced his lawyer in the Intermediate Court.

Mohammad Asminan bin Tambil, 33, is now represented by defence counsel Mansur Latif, while facing three counts of making sexual advances charges. The defendant allegedly committed the offences on three occasions.

The first was in Gadong in 2018; the second at a residential flat in Jalan Dobi Berakas Kem, sometime in 2019; and the third at the same flat, sometime last May.

Judge Radin Safiee bin Radin Mas Basiuni adjourned the case to July 29, while giving time for the defence to look into the case.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Nor Hafizah binti Ahmad’s charges carry three to 10 years’ imprisonment and a caning.
