PETALING JAYA: Nine charges against two men suspected of carrying out an attack on a restaurant in Puchong in June have been transferred to the High Court.

Sessions Court Judge Azwarnida Affandi accepted a request from the prosecution to transfer the case to the Kuala Lumpur High Court where the duo currently already face a charge under Section 130(c)(1)(b) of the Penal Code for committing terrorist acts.

Imam Wahyudin Karjono, 21 and Jonius Ondie @ Jahali, 24 faced eight charges in the Sessions Court under Section 307 for attempted murder and one count under Section 8 of the Firearms (Heavy Penalties) Act 1971 for using a hand grenade.

Deputy public prosecutor Mohamad Mustaffa P. Kunyalam argued that the transfer was to allow the cases against the two to be heard together.

Both accused did not object to the transfer.

Jonius was represented by Aaron Mark Pius while Imam was represented by lawyers Fareida Mohd and Wong Kar Fai.

Eight people were injured during the incident at the Movida restaurant on June 28.

Police later confirmed that it was the first attack by the Islamic State terror group in Malaysia.
