A 38-year-old local man denied a charge of cheating levelled against him in the Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday.

Prosecutor Hajah ‘Adzimah Mukarramah binti Salleh alleged Muhammad Eddy Hasni bin Abdullah Amle @ Sunee bin Amle of duping a 34-year-old woman into handing over a BND40 Easi top-up, claiming that he had paid her for it.

This purportedly occurred at a sundry shop in Kampong Sungai Liang at 7.25pm on February 9. Senior Magistrate Azrimah binti Abdul Rahman gave the prosecution two weeks to manage the case for trial and adjourned it to March 6.
