Impersonation of royalty case to be heard on Dec 11

GEORGE TOWN - The case of a man who denied cheating by impersonating royalty and using an illegal symbol, has been fixed for case management by a magistrate's court on Dec 11.

Magistrate Sri Pracha Nanthini Balabedha fixed the date for the case management of Roshidi Fadzil, 47, from Taman Bunga Raya in Malacca.

On Oct 17, Roshidi had claimed trial to conning Ooi Ten Seng, 39, by posing as a member of a royal family with the title "Yang Teramat Mulia (YTM) Tunku Putera Roshidi Tunku Hj Fadzil" at the banquet hall of the Cititel Hotel in Penang Road at about 4.15pm on Oct 23, last year.

The offence under Section 419 of the Penal Code for cheating by impersonation carries a jail term of up to seven years, a fine or both upon conviction.

He also denied using a symbol of the Pertubuhan Amal Kebajikan Islamiah Malaysia (Pakim Diraja/Serampang Tiga), which has not been approved by the Registrar of Societies.
