PASIR MAS: A businessman was charged in the Sessions Court here today, on the charge of kidnapping a cosmetics sales agent, Rosnazirah Mohd. Naim, 36, or Azie, three months ago.
The accused, Chek Norhafizzi Chek Nor, 31, however pleaded not guilty after the charges against him were read before Judge Badrul Munir Mohd. Hamdy.
According to the charges, the accused is accused together with another person who is still at large of kidnapping Rosnazirah from Malaysia.
He allegedly committed the offense at a house in Kampung Semat Jal, Wakaf Bharu, near Tumpat at about 5.06pm on September 13.
The accused was charged in accordance with Section 363 of the Penal Code (Act 574) read together with Section 34 of the same act which provides for a prison sentence of up to seven years and can be fined if convicted.
The prosecution was conducted by Deputy Public Prosecutor, Hajarul Falenna Itah Abu Bakar while the accused was represented by lawyer, Mohd. Firdaus Zainal Abidin and Majdah Muhamad.
Earlier, Hajarul Falenna did not offer any guarantees because the accused’s case was very serious when he brought the woman to a neighboring country.
Mohd. Firdaus in his appeal requested the court to guarantee his client with an appropriate amount of bail.
The court rejected the bail application because the accused risked fleeing to a neighboring country.
In addition, the court takes seriously the crimes committed by Chek Norhafizzi that could threaten the lives of others.
The court set this January 20 for the submission of documents and the renaming of the case.
The newspaper previously reported that Rosnazirah, who is also a cosmetics sales agent, was run over by a group of men in a Toyota Vios car on September 13.
Thai authorities raided two houses on the banks of the Golok River, believed to be where Rosnazirah was hidden after escaping from her home in Kampung Semat Jal.
Acting Kelantan Police Chief, Datuk Muhamad Zaki Harun said that a misunderstanding between the victim’s husband and a member of the drug syndicate he was a part of was believed to be the reason the woman was kidnapped.
Inspector General of Police, Tan Sri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani in a statement said, Rosnazirah was rescued with the help of the Thai authorities and brought back to Malaysia.
According to him, the whereabouts of the victims in the country can be traced through close cooperation between the Royal Malaysian Police and the Royal Thai Police.
Rosnazirah returned safely to her family in Jalan Kelochor, Kota Bharu last October 3 after three weeks of being taken away. – MESSENGER
