PETALING JAYA: A policewoman and two men were charged separately in various courts today in connection with Daesh militant activities.

Corporal Jusninawati Abdul Gani, 35, was charged with intentionally omitting information on terrorist acts at the Petaling Jaya police station between August 2015 and March 22, 2016.

She was charged under Section 130M of the Penal Code, which carries a jail term of up to seven years or fine, or both, if found guilty.

Magistrate Fadzlin Suraya Datuk Mohd Suah set May 24 for mention of the case.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Azlina Rasdi prosecuted, while the policewoman was unrepresented.

At the Kuala Lumpur Magistrate’s Court in Jalan Duta, businessman Mohd Naazri Ishak @ Bahari, 49, was charged with providing his Maybank account with the knowledge that the facility would be used by or for benefit a terrorist entity.

He was charged with committing the offence at Flat Sri Kota, Bandar Tun Razak, at 8.20am on March 22.

The offence, under Section 130O (1) (b) (bb) of the Penal Code, carries an imprisonment of up to 30 years, and is liable to fine, if found guilty.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Mohd Dusuki Mokhtar did not offer bail. Magistrate Siti Radziah Kamaruddin set June 21 for mention of the case.

At the Selayang Magistrate’s Court, moneychanger Mohd Haniffa Syedul Akhbar, 36, was charged with possession of items connected with terrorist acts at 17A, Kesumba 3A/6, Bukit Beruntung, Rawang, at 8.55am on March 22.

The charge, under Section 130JB (1)(a) of the Penal Code, carries an imprisonment of up to seven years or fine, and the forfeiture of the items concerned, if found guilty.

Haniffa, who was unrepresented, pleaded guilty to the charge.

However, Deputy Public Prosecutor Mohamad Mustaffa P Kunyalam informed the court that the guilty plea could not be recorded at the Magistrate’s Court as the offence also came under the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012 which came under the jurisdiction of the High Court.

Magistrate Iriane Isabelo set May 27 for mention of the case.
