The Petaling Jaya Magistrates' Court today postponed to June 21 to decide on a case involving actor Farid Kamil Zahari. 

Farid Kamil is facing two charges for causing hurt, one for criminal violence and one for indecent behaviour at the Kota Damansara police station.

Magistrate Nor Arifin Hisham set the date after lawyer Megat Syazlee Mokhtarom, representing the actor, informed the court that the defence only received the written submission from the prosecution late yesterday.

“We need about two weeks to study the submission,” he said.

The court had set today to decide on the case.

Earlier, deputy public prosecutor Alia Sumayyah Amran apologised to the court for the delay in submission as she was not well.

On Jan 16 last year, Farid Kamil pleaded not guilty to two charges with voluntarily causing hurt on an account executive, Ashraf Ahmad, 35, and police constable Muhammad Nizam Jamaluddin, 24, at the Kota Damansara police station.

He was also charged with using criminal force on Nizam, who was performing his duty as a police officer, while the fourth count is for disorderly conduct by uttering improper words at Nizam at the police station.

Last May 15, the court sentenced the actor to nine months’ jail for drug abuse.
