Man claims trial to incitement [New Straits Time (Malaysia)]
(New Straits Time (Malaysia) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) KUALA LUMPUR: Cafe assistant Muhammad Hilmi Hasim pleaded not guilty at the High Court to a charge of abetting former Internal Security Act detainee Yazid Sufaat in promoting an ideology intended to incite the people of Syria.
He was alleged to have committed the offence at Yazid's house in Taman Bukit Ampang between Aug 1 and Oct 20 last year.
Hilmi was initially charged on Thursday at the Ampang magistrate's court, but no plea was recorded then.
He was arrested with Yazid, who runs a cafe at the Jalan Duta court complex cafeteria, on Feb 7.
The duo, along with Yazid's friend, Halimah Hussein, 52, were detained under the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act.
On Feb 8, Yazid, 49, was charged with incitement while Halimah was charged with abetting him.
Both Yazid and Halimah have also claimed trial at the High Court.
Yesterday, deputy public prosecutor Datuk Mohamad Hanafiah Zakaria applied for all three cases to be tried together.
The trial is expected to begin on May 20.
High Court judge Kamardin Hashim allowed the application.
Hilmi's lawyer Amer Hamzah informed the court that he would be applying to set aside the charges against the three accused.
