Popular celebrity, Neelofa, along with her husband PU Riz, were spotted arriving at the Seremban Court earlier this morning (Friday, 24th September), at about 8:40am.
It was reported that the husband-and-wife duo were in attendance for the re-mention of their alleged CMCO SOPs violation case during their visit to a carpet shop in Nilai back in May.
Back on 20th May, Neelofa and PU Riz (full name Muhammad Haris Ismail) pleaded not guilty to a charge of flouting the CMCO SOPs. Neelofa was later granted bail of RM5,000 by the court on charges of failing to register their details via the MySejahtera app or manually before entering a carpet shop located at the Nilai 3 Industrial Area at 4pm on 2nd May.
Additionally, lawyer Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah, was also spotted together with Neelofa’s legal reps at the location. As per The Star, the Magistrate’s Court has set 21st October for next mention of the case. Muhammad Shafee Abdullah revealed that Magistrate Mahyun Yusof gave the date following the case management, which was held earlier today.
“I received the documents for both cases as required under Section 51A of the Criminal Procedure Code this morning. We will study the contents of the documents and then decide to file a representation or prepare for defence based on what we have. It’s a small matter,” the prominent legal practitioner (representing the former “MeleTOP” host) was quoted as saying.
Soon after the news about the couple made headlines, there were also some hawk-eyed fans who shifted their focus on the “bump” on Lofa’s tummy. As a result, most of them have speculated that the starlet is currently expecting her first baby with her Muslim preacher hubs! Others have also begun leaving congratulatory wishes to the couple, though the two of them opted to stay mum about this matter.
As we mentioned earlier, the court has set 21st October for the next mention of the case.
