SEREMBAN – The Seremban Magistrate’s Court today gave a discharge not amounting to an acquittal to a teacher who had been accused of voluntarily causing hurt to a pupil last April.
Magistrate Mohd Zaki Abdul Rahman handed down the judgement on Azizan Manap, also known as Cikgu Azizan, 44, who had been charged with injuring the left cheek of an 11-year-old male pupil of Sekolah Kebangsaan Taman Semarak in Nilai near here at about 7 am on April 6.
Azizan is the senior assistant (pupils’ affairs) at the school.
Mohd Zaki made the decision after DPP Hazeelia Muhammad informed the court that she had been instructed by the Attorney-General’s Chambers to withdraw the charge.
Azizan, who was represented by counsel Francis Pereira, was moved by the decision of the court. – BERNAMA
