Nur Sajat is maintaining her innocence and freedom to express herself. Unfortunately, this is going to be an uphill battle for her.
It was recently reported that Nur Sajat pleaded not guilty at the Shah Alam Syariah High Court on 6th January (Wednesday) to charges of cross-dressing. She made the confession after the charge was read before Syarie Judge Mohammad Khalid Shaee @ Shaii.
According to The Sun, the accused was charged of “bringing contempt to the religion of Islam” by dressing up as a woman at a religious event. The offence was allegedly committed at her business premise in Section 16, Shah Alam, at 7.30pm on 23rd February 2018.
The charge was made under Section 10(a) of the Syariah Criminal Offences (Selangor) Enactment 1995. If found guilty, Sajat (full name Muhammad Sajjad Kamaruzzaman) can be fined up to RM5,000 or face imprisonment up to three years, or both.
Sajat was later released on bail of RM3,000 and the court fixed 23rd February for case mention.
