Fadley Faisal

The Magistrate’s Court remitted the case involving a man faced with a charge of extortion to the Intermediate Court for hearing last Saturday. No date was given by the Intermediate Court to hear the case against Muhammad Afham Wafi bin Bujang on a charge of extortion for threatening a 27-year-old man to distribute a private photo of him in the toilet to obtain BND300.

The charge levelled by DPP Raihan Nabilah binti Haji Ahmad Ghazali carries a penalty of three to 10 years’ jail with whipping.
