KUALA LUMPUR: Actress Lydiawati claimed trial at Ampang magistrate court near here for allegedly causing hurt.
Lydiawati whose real name is Salina Zaimon, 51, was charged with voluntarily causing hurt to businesswoman Sharifah Harnizam Wan Musa, 43, by using a steel object.
The alleged offence was committed at a hotel in Ampang, Hulu Langat at around 6.30pm on March 24.
Lydiawati was charged under Section 324 of the Penal Code.
If convicted, she could be sentenced up to 10 years in jail, a fine, or whipping or any two of the three punishments.
Deputy public prosecutor Raihanah Abd Razak sought a bail of RM5,000.
But Magistrate Haslinda A Raof set bail at RM3,300 after taking into account the plea for leniency by Fatimah Zahrah Ramli who represented Lydiawati.
Fatimah said Lydiawati is a single mother with two children, one in secondary school while the other is studying abroad.
Fatimah added that Lydiawati also does not have a fixed income and has a heart problem, which requires monthly check-ups at the National Heart Institute of Malaysia.
Magistrate Haslinda fixed mention on June 24.
