THE odd-job worker accused of spitting at two women at a bus interchange is claiming trial to five of the six charges he is facing.
Juraimi Kamaludin admitted to spitting at Lee Kuan Eng, 34, claiming he only did it once during the argument at Woodlands Regional Interchange, which occurred at about 9.30pm on Oct 22.
A video of the incident has attracted over 285,000 views on YouTube.
In court, Juraimi said he spat at her because she insulted his mother and uttered a racial slur about him.
However, he denied spitting in her face again or at Teoh Lay Peng, 41.
He is also contesting allegations that he pushed Teoh out of the bus and behaved aggressively, causing danger to the public and other passengers on bus service 950.
In addition, the 48-year-old denied behaving in a disorderly manner at a void deck in Bukit Batok on Sept 8.
Juraimi, who has not engaged a lawyer, is currently out on S$10,000 (RM25,924) bail. His case is set for a pre-trial conference on Jan 6.
If convicted of using criminal force, he could be jailed for up to three months, fined up to S$1,500 (RM3,887) or both. The spitting charges fall under this section.
He is also charged with committing a rash act. The maximum penalty for this offence is six months’ jail and a S$2,500 (RM6,478) fine. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
