41-year-old mechanic, Syed Fakrulrazi Syed Abdul Rahman claimed trial at the Ayer Keroh Sessions Court for two counts of allegedly seriously injuring and intimidating his wife for refusing to have sex.

He pleaded not guilty to the charges before Judge Darmafikri Abu Adam yesterday (June 6).

According to Berita Harian, the accused allegedly committed the first offence by hitting the nose of his 33-year-old wife with his head on February 12, 10 am at their house in Taman Tanjung Minyak Perdana, Melaka Tengah.

If found guilty on the first offence under Section 325 of the Penal Code read together with Section 326A, he faces a maximum seven-year jail term and fine, or twice the maximum jail term.

The second offence involves him allegedly threatening to kill his wife at the same place, date and time for refusing to have sexual intercourse with him.

The accused was charged under Section 506 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation, which carries a penalty of up to two years in jail, a fine or both, upon conviction.

Deputy Public Prosecutor, Aliff Asraf Anuar Sharuddin objected to bail for the first charge but suggested bail of RM20,000 with one surety with the additional condition of the accused not disturbing the victim and reporting to the nearest police station.

The defence lawyer, Ishak Mohd Kari, applied for a lower bail on the grounds that his client previously worked in a furniture store and recently just got a new job as a mechanic on June 1 with a salary of RM2,000 a month.

He also told the court the accused has four children aged two to 10 years and has since moved to Bentong, Pahang after the incident.

He said, even so, the accused has to carry out the responsibility of paying alimony for his wife who does not work and their children, in addition to the victim, also filing a formal divorce claim at the Syariah Court here.

The court granted RM10,000 bail with one surety and fixed July 10 for re-mention.
