Oct 27 for mention of Safiey Ilias’ sexual case

KUALA LUMPUR: The Ampang Sessions Court has fixed Oct 27 to mention the case involving cosmetics entrepreneur Safiey Ilias, who is charged with sexually communicating and non-physical sexual assault involving a minor.

Deputy public prosecutor Nurhashimah Hashim informed judge Wan Mohd Norisham Wan Yaakob that Safiey Ilias, whose real name is Mohd Safiuddin Ilias, 28, was charged at the Putrajaya Sessions Court in March and the case has now been transferred to the Ampang Court.

“Today is the first mention of the case in the Ampang Court. I request the next date be set for the submission of documents related to the case,” said Nurhashimah.

Also in court was lawyer Harjeet Singh Sidhu who was representing Safiey.

In March, the Syinta Gila singer pleaded not guilty to a charge of sexually communicating with a boy who was 14 years and five months old at the time via Instagram.

The offence was allegedly committed at his residence in Bandar Baru Bangi at 9am on June 9, 2021.

He also pleaded not guilty to the charge of committing non-physical sexual abuse against the child at the same location, date and time.

The charges were framed under Section 11 (1)(a) of the Sexual Offences Against Children Act 2017, which carries a maximum prison sentence of three years, and Section 15 (a)(i) which carries a maximum prison sentence of 10 years, a fine not exceeding RM20,000 or both, upon conviction. — Bernama
