PUTRAJAYA: Muhdalena Ahmad, the woman who allegedly ran amok with a sword-wielding man outside the Prime Minister’s Department, has been ordered to enter her defence over the incident.
Sessions Court judge Mohamed Kamil Nizam ruled yesterday that the prosecution had established a prima facie case in the four charges against Muhdalena.
Muhdalena, 28, is accused of committing criminal intimidation by threatening to cause grievous hurt to a policeman, possession of a sword, and two additional charges under the Protected Areas and Protected Places Act 1959.
“Korporal Ridzuan (Megat Ahmad)’s testimony helped form
my decision that she threatened to harm the officers,” said Mohamed Kamil. Kpl Ridzuan, a first responder at the scene, testified that Muhdalena’s partner Khalil Afendi Abd Hamid had shouted: “Polis jangan masuk campur, kalau tak, mati (Police, don’t get involved, or else, you’re dead).”
The duo then charged at him, forcing Kpl Ridzuan to open fire. “Though he (Kpl Ridzuan) was armed, and considering that the accused did not stop despite being issued three warnings and instead charged at him, I understand how this could make (Kpl) Ridzuan fear for his life,” said Mohamed Kamil.
The court also found that three police officers at the scene and CCTV footage had proved that Muhdalena had wielded a samurai sword during the incident.
Mohamed Kamil ruled that the two additional charges were proven by the fact Muhdalena had entered the PM’s Department, a restricted area, without getting permission to do so. The court fixed Feb 13, 24 and 25 for Muhdalena to enter her defence.
Counsel M. Visvanathan told the court that in addition to Muhdalena, two psychiatrists would be testifying for the defence. Khalil Afendi died from his injuries.
