KUALA LUMPUR: Former Internal Security Act detainee Yazid Sufaat, 49, was charged at the Ampang Magistrate's Court here Friday with inciting terrorist acts at a house in Ampang between August and October 2012.
In the charge read out by Magistrate Zulyana Zollkapli, Yazid was alleged to have "threatened the public in Syria" with these acts, the penalty for which is up to 30 years jail and a fine. He was charged under Section 130G(a) of the Penal Code.
His acquaintance Halimah Hussein, 52, was charged with abetting Yazid.
The duo were nabbed on Thursday under the new Special Offences (Security Measures) Act 2012, and held at Bukit Aman overnight.
Under the relevant section in the Penal Code, the pair cannot be granted bail.
Their counsel Amer Hamzah Arshad said a plea would be recorded when the case was transferred to Shah Alam High Court.
According to Yazid's wife Chomel Mohamad, 48, Halimah was an "acquaintance" who had given her religious lessons.
"I last saw her a month ago," she told The Star earlier while waiting for her husband's arrival from Bukit Aman.
A third person, Mohd Hilmi Hasim, who was also detained Thursday, had his remand extended.
The three were the first to be arrested under the new Act.
