The Magistrate’s Court adjourned a case for trial involving allegations of cheating against a local man who denied the charge yesterday.

Pengiran Abdul Hadi Hazim bin Pengiran Idrus, 31, allegedly cheated a 21-year-old man at 2am on August 8 at a house on Jalan Kebangsaan Lama.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Hajah Siti Mu’izzah binti Haji Sabli further alleged that the defendant lied to the victim that a girl named ‘Amal’ was in the house and available for sexual services, in return for the victim to hand him a mobile phone.

The charge carries a penalty of up to seven years’ jail and a fine.

Magistrate Mohammad Marzuqi bin Sabtu will set trial dates for the case in the next mention on August 26.
