KUALA LUMPUR: A Malaysian 1980s actress accused of voluntarily causing hurt to another woman has submitted a representation to the Attorney-General’s Chambers for her charge to be reviewed.

Lydiawati, or Salina Zaimon, 51, through her counsel Fatimah Zah­rah Ramli, informed the court of the matter when her case came up for mention at Ampang magistrate’s court yesterday.

Magistrate Haslinda A. Raof had set Oct 13 for mention, pending the decision on the representation.

Prosecuting the case is deputy public prosecutor Nor­hashimah Hashim.

On May 16, Lydiawati, who gained popularity through the Suami, Isteri dan ... movie, claimed trial to hitting Sharifah Harnizam Wan Musa, 43, a Brunei trader, with a piece of iron.

The single mother of two allegedly committed the offence at Safari Two Hotel, Lot 52 Jalan Mamanda 9, Ampang, at 6.30pm on March 24.

The charge under Section 324 of the Penal Code carries a maximum 10 years’ jail or fine or whipping, or any two of the punishments, upon conviction. — Bernama
