PETALING JAYA: A businessman and his son were charged today with causing the death of a stall trader more than a month ago.
Datuk Seri Jaafar Shaari, 50, and Ahmad Jiwari Jaafar, 23, were alleged to have been involved in a fight and caused the death of Azahari Sidek, 44, at Downtown, The Mines in Seri Kembangan between 3.40am and 5.30am on Aug 13.
They pleaded not guilty.
Deputy public prosecutor Siti Aishah Ab Rashid proposed bail of RM15,000 with one surety for each accused.
However, counsel Datuk Abdul Halim Yahya pleaded for a lower bail, saying that Jaafar's wife was a factory worker and that he had surrendered to the police.
Sessions judge Hayatul Akmal Abdul Aziz set bail at RM10,000 with one surety and fixed Oct 23 for mention.
It is understood that Jaafar, who is the main founder of the Malaysian National Malay Supremacy Legacy Association, and Ahmad Jiwari operate a stall selling drinks, and so did the victim.
Azahari was found dead as a result of being beaten up by a group of men.
Jaafar was taken into custody on Sept 10 while his son was arrested three days later.
It was reported that in the incident, Azahari was said to have taken a table which had been left on the five-foot way to a place near his stall.
However, a man, said to be operating a business in the area, claimed that the table was his and he called a few friends who allegedly assaulted Azahari.
