Myanmar man charged with placing private part into Indonesian colleague's mouth

KUALA LUMPUR: A Myanmar man was charged in the Ampang magistrate's court here today with committing an act of gross indecency by attempting to place his penis into the mouth of a male Indonesian colleague.

However, no plea was recorded from Noor Kabir Abu Zafar, 40, who works at a barber shop, as he did not understand the charge that was read out in Malay to him before Magistrate Haslinda A.Raof.

Prior to that, Noor Kabir told the court that he understood Bahasa Malaysia, but when questioned by the court interpreter whether he understood the charge that was read out to him, he said he did not fully understand it.

Following which, the court set March 14 for a mention for the presence of a Myanmar interpreter.

Noor Kabir was alleged to have attempted to place his penis into the 29-year-old Indonesian man's mouth twice at his workplace at a barber shop in Kampung Ampang Indah, Ampang here at 6 pm last Feb 5.

The charge, under Section 377 D of the Penal Code, provides an imprisonment for up to two years, if found guilty.

Deputy public prosecutor Norhashimah Hashim, who prosecuted, did not allow bail as the accused is a foreigner. — Bernama
