Dog trainer brought to court in Segamat

PETALING JAYA: Maznah Mohd Yusof, the woman who was featured in a controversial video celebrating Hari Raya with her dogs, will be brought to the Magistrate's court in Segamat for a hearing on the possible extension of her remand order.

Her lawyer Latheefa Koya said that Maznah was brought to Segamat very early this morning as that was where the first police report was lodged against her.

"This is absolutely ridiculous and doesn't make sense. They can conduct the investigations in Kuala Lumpur or Selangor. They are just doing this to harass her," Latheefa said adding that she met Maznah in Bukit Aman at 12.30am today.

Maznah who is also known as Chetz was arrested on Wednesday and was initially in custody in Bukit Aman.

Latheefa said that Maznah had been cooperating with the police and should be charged if indeed there really was a case for her to answer.

She added that there was a lawyer in Segamat who would be challenging the remand.

Maznah has been at the centre of a social media storm after a video of her celebrating Hari Raya with her dogs three years ago was uploaded to YouTube on Monday.

The 104-second clip, titled "Video Menghina Islam 1 Hari di Hari Raya" shows Maznah walking near a mosque with three dogs with the Takbir Raya (a special takbir recited on the first day of Hari Raya) playing in the background. She is also seen washing their paws and feeding them cookies.
