AGC rejects actor Farid Kamil’s bid to have charges dropped

Actor Farid Kamil is facing five charges.

PETALING JAYA: The Attorney General’s Chambers has rejected actor Farid Kamil Zahari’s representation for the five criminal charges against him to be dropped.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Mohamad Firdaous Mohamed Idris said this when Farid’s case came up for mention today before magistrate Nor Ariffin Hisham.

The court then retained the five-day trial date beginning Nov 27.

Farid, 37, said that he would submit the second representation soon.

On Jan 16, Farid pleaded not guilty to four counts, comprising two counts for voluntarily causing hurt, using criminal force and disorderly conduct by using improper language at the Kota Damansara Traffic Police station.

For the first two charges, Farid, who is also a director, is alleged to have caused injuries to Ashraf Ahmad, 35, a private company accounts manager, and policeman Muhammad Nizam Jamaluddin, 24.

On the third charge, Farid is alleged to have used criminal force on Nizam, who was performing his duty as a police officer.

Farid is also charged with hurling insults at Nizam at the police station.

Nine days later, on Jan 25, Farid also pleaded not guilty to using tetrahydrocannabinol or THC drug.
