KUALA LUMPUR – A mechanic pleaded not guilty in the High Court here today to two counts of giving support to a terrorist group and act involving the use of explosives last year.
Nur Redzwan Wan Redzmann (rpt: Redzmann), 30, made the plea after the charges were read out before Judge Datuk Azman Abdullah.
The charges were for knowingly giving support to the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group and for knowingly giving support to a terrorist act involving the use of explosives which he knew was intended to pursue an ideology, whereby the act could be regarded as intending to threaten Malaysians using the telegram application in his Iphone5s smartphone.
Nur Redzwan was alleged to have committed both the offences at No 7, Jalan Watan 24,Taman Sri Watan, Ampang here, between March 25 and June 30, 2016.
The first charge, under Section 130J(1)(a) of the Penal Code, provides an imprisonment for life, or imprisonment for a term not exceeding 30 years, or with fine, and shall also be liable to forfeiture of any property used or intended to be used in connection with the commission of the offence.
The second charge was made under Section 130J (1)(b) of the same law and carried the same punishment, if found guilty.
The prosecution was conducted by deputy public prosecutor Nurfaida Mohd Rashidee, while lawyer Sangeet Kaur represented Nur Redzwan.
The court set Aug 10 as mention date for submission of documents. – BERNAMA
