KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 3 — A “Datuk Seri” who pleaded not guilty to four counts of hurting and injuring three People Volunteer Corps (Rela) volunteers earlier today has landed back in lock-up.
Liow Soon Hee, 29, was remanded today following investigations in a drug case, just moments after he posted a collective bail of RM17,000 on all four charges at the Ampang Magistrates Court here.
Instead of leaving the premises after posting bail, Liow found himself in handcuffs once again after police obtained an arrest warrant for a drug case in Dang Wangi.
Dang Wangi police chief Assistant Commissioner Shaharudin Abdullah said he was wanted for a drug case in 2014, under Section 15(1) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952 concerning self-administration of drugs.
He said they will obtain a remand order for the man tomorrow and are expected to charge him on Monday.
Liow had earlier pleaded not guilty to all charges handed down by Magistrate Mohamad Firdaus Sadina Ali.
The first charge was under Section 325 of the Penal Code for voluntarily causing grievous hurt to Lee Weng Poh, 27, at Tokong Kou Ong Yah, Jalan Merdeka in Kampung Baru Ampang on Oct 27.
The second charge was under Section 353 of the Penal Code for using criminal force to deter a public servant from discharge of his duty.
The magistrate had set bail at RM7,000 and RM4,000 with one surety each for the respective charges.
Liow was further charged separately under Section 323 of the Penal Code for voluntarily causing hurt to 21-year-old Leong Jun Jie and Melvin Cheong Mun Khai at Tokong Kou Ong Yah, Jalan Merdeka in Kampung Baru Ampang on October 27.
The magistrate set bail at RM3,000 with one surety for each charge.
The court set December 14 for mention.
