KUALA LUMPUR: The Magistrate's Court here has fixed March 20 to find out the status of a representation by a policewoman known as Inspector Sheila to strike out a charge made against her for causing public nuisance.

Lawyer M. Manoharan, who represents the policewoman whose full name is Sheila Sharon Steven Kumar, 36, said the representation to the Attorney General's Chambers (AGC) was filed on Tuesday (Feb 20) on grounds that the charge is frivolous.

The prosecution said that they need three weeks to study the 200-page representation, said the lawyer when met by reporters after the case came up for mention before Magistrate Illi Marisqa Khalizan.

On Nov 8 last year, Sheila pleaded not guilty to the charge of causing public nuisance by scolding, shouting and honking her car at Nuraihan Nadzirah Ibrahim, 27, in the parking lot of a shopping centre in Brickfields here at 5.26pm on June 16, 2023.

The charge, framed under Section 268 of the Penal Code, provides a maximum fine of RM400, upon conviction. – Bernama
