SINGAPORE: The State of Courts here today postponed hearing of Malaysian actor Tony Eusoff’s drug possession case to April 21.
The postponement was given as Tony’s lawyer is overseas for a week.
It was reported earlier that Tony, 38, whose real name is Anthony Joseph Anak Hermas Rajiman was brought before a court on March 31 and charged with possession of Class A drugs under the Drug Abuse Act.
The news report said the actor was believed to have owned a packet containing no less than 4.56g of vegetable substance that was analysed and found to contain traces of cannabis.
He was allegedly found in possession of the drugs at the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority bus arrival hall at the Tuas checkpoint on March 12.
If found guilty, Tony could be jailed up to 10 years or fined up to S$20,000 or both.
When approached outside the courtroom, Tony declined to give any comments. A group of Singaporeans believed to be his fans were also there.
