PETALING JAYA: Police have confirmed that the trial of celebrity preacher Ebit Lew on 11 charges of sexual harassment will take place late next month.
In a brief statement, federal police headquarters said the trial has been set for Sept 27-30 at the Tenom circuit court in the interior division of Sabah.
Ebit had been charged in February and pleaded not guilty to all charges.
