KLIA shooting suspect brought to Selangor to face two more charges


PETALING JAYA: Alleged gunman Hafizul Hawari has been brought to Selangor to face two more charges at the Sessions Court in Sepang.

The 38-year-old, who was allegedly involved in the recent shooting incident at Kuala Lumpur International Airport, was further charged with attempting to murder his wife and intentionally causing serious injury to a bodyguard.

The travel agency manager was charged with attempting to murder businesswoman Farah Md Isa, 38, and seriously injuring the bodyguard on the third level of KLIA at 1.09am on April 14.

The charges were under Sections 307 and 326 of the Penal Code.

Hafizul pleaded not guilty after all the charges were read to him before the judge.

On Wednesday (April 24), Hafizul was slapped with seven charges in the Kota Baru Sessions Court, among them for possession of a gun, ammunition and firecrackers, three MyKad belonging to different individuals, and driving a car bearing a fake registration number near a private hospital in the district at 2pm on April 15.

He was denied bail for the charges of possessing the gun, ammunition and firecrackers but granted bail amounting to RM20,000 for the other four charges.

The court also allowed the accused to be transferred to Sungai Buloh Prison and set May 23 for next mention.

During the incident, a firecracker was let off in the direction of Farah at KLIA before two shots were fired, causing her bodyguard to be injured.

A manhunt ensued and the accused was arrested about 38 hours later.
