KUALA LUMPUR – The Attorney-General’s Chambers has denied a request by actress Lydiawati, who is accused of voluntarily causing hurt to another woman, for the charge against her to be reviewed.
Following the decision, the Ampang Magistrate Court here today fixed Jan 23 and 24 to hear the case.
Lydiawati, 51, whose real name is Salina Zaimon, is charged with voluntarily causing hurt on a Brunei businesswoman, Sharifah Harnizam Wan Musa, 43, at Hotel Safari 2, Lot 52, Jalan Mamanda 9, near here, at 6.30 pm last March 24.
Magistrate Haslinda Raof fixed the dates after deputy public prosecutor Norhashimah Hashim, who prosecuted, informed the court on the Attorney-General’s Chambers’ decision.
Lydiawati, represented by counsel Fatimah Zahrah Ramli, was charged under Section 324 of Penal Code which carries a jail term for up to 10 years, or fine, or whipping, or any of the two penalties, if convicted. – BERNAMA
