PROSECUTORS yesterday pressed a charge against two locals for committing housebreaking for theft.
Magistrate Noor Hajah Amalina binti Dato Paduka Haji Alaihuddin adjourned the case against Mohammad Zulkarnain bin Abdul Manaf, 31, and Muhammad Sharifuddin bin Abdul Manaf, 29, to June 22. The adjournment is meant to make way for further police investigations into the case before DPP Hajah Siti Mu’izzah binti Haji Sabli initiates further proceedings. The duo is alleged to have broken into a house at Kampong Kilanas late in the night of June 7 in order to commit theft.
The charge carries a penalty of 15 years’ jail with whipping.
