PETALING JAYA – A Singapore businessman claimed trial for abusing a dog named Furby (pix) at the magistrate’s court here today.
Yee Kok Chew, 57, claimed trial to hitting and abusing the brown and white mongrel and causing pain and suffering to the dog.
He is alleged to have committed the offence at security guard post at about 8.49pm on April 2, 2017.
Magistrate Azali Ibrahim granted RM3,000 bail with a Malaysian surety and fixed Sept 4, 2017 for a mention.
Yesterday, Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali said he had ordered the abuser of the dog to be charged by the end of this week for animal cruelty.
The attorney-general said order has been given for the suspect, Terry Yee Kok Chew, who was caught on closed-circuit television footage violently hitting the dog in a residential area in April, to be brought to book for his deed.
“I managed to check on the Furby case. The abuser is going to be charged very soon. Directions have been given. He (Yee) will be charged within this week,” he replied in a brief message to theSun yesterday from overseas. – The Sun
