KUALA LUMPUR: The trial for the two men accused of bombing a restaurant in Puchong in June is set to be heard next month.

High Court Judicial Commissioner Nordin Hassan on Monday set the trial for Jan 11 and Jan 12 to hear testimony from 12 witnesses.

Imam Wahyudin Karjono, 21 and Jonius Ondie @ Jahali, 24, face eight charges under Section 307 of the Penal Code for attempted murder, and one charge under Section 8 of the Firearms (Heavy Penalties) Act 1971 for using hand grenades.

Both are alleged to have committed the offence at the Movida restaurant and bar at IOI Boulevard in Puchong at about 2am on June 28.

The duo also face a charge under Section 130(c)(1)(b) of the Penal Code for committing terrorist acts.

In a separate court, Jonius was also charged with Section 130J(1)(b) of the Penal Court for the commission of terrorist acts.

Jonius, a factory operator from Sabah, was represented by Aaron Mark Pius, while Imam was represented by Farida Mohammad.

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.
