Saiful Apek

SHAH ALAM: Comedian Saiful Apek and three of his workers were each fined RM2,500 for taking marijuana four years ago.

 Judge Datuk Nurchaya Arshad overturned the Petaling Jaya Magistrates Court's decision which had released them on Sept 30 last year.

She further ordered all the accused to serve six months in prison in default of the fine and ordered them to be placed under supervision for three years.

On Sept 30, 2013, Magistrate Ahmad Solihin Abd Wahid had discharged and released Saiful Apek, whose actual name is Mohd Saifulazam Mohamed Yusoff, 45, and his workers on the grounds that the defence had raised a reasonable doubt on the prosecution's case.

The three workers were Shah Zainatull Ehsan Al-Muazam Shah Yahya, 31, Shaiful Baharom, 27, and Noremy Mohamad, 31, from his company Gitu-Gitu Productions.

Following this decision the prosecution filed an appeal at the High Court here.

Saiful Apek, Shah Zainatull Ehsan, Shaiful and Noremy committed the offence at the Subang Jaya police headquarters' Narcotics CID office in Taman Putra Permai, Seri Kembangan, Petaling Jaya at 11 pm on June 12, 2010.
