'Tuhan Harun' charged with practising deviationist teachings
KUANTAN: A 47-year-old man, who claimed that he was "Tuhan 2013" (God of 2013), was charged at the Syariah High Court yesterday with practising deviationist teachings.
Harun Mat Saat, a music composer and an adviser to several investment companies, allegedly named himself as "Tuhan Harun" and spread deviationist teachings at three premises here since last February.
Harun, who was unrepresented, pleaded not guilty to committing the offence at Lorong Pandan Damai here between February and April 4.
Syariah High Court judge Mohd Yusuf Ab Ghani set bail at RM3,000 and fixed hearing on July 2.
Harun is also facing another 10 charges at the lower syariah court for various related offences, including distributing pamphlets and books on deviationist teachings.
Harun pleaded not guilty to all charges.
Judge Abdul Wahid Md Ali set the bail at RM15,000 with two sureties and fixed hearing on Aug 20.
State Religious Department head of syariah prosecutor Salehuddin Ab Manaf appeared for the prosecution.
Harun was later sent to Penor prison because he could not raise bail.
On April 9, Harun claimed trial in the magistrate's court here after he was charged with cheating a contractor of RM200,000 five years ago.
He also claimed trial at Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court on April 17 to five counts of assisting three investment companies to accept deposits without valid licence.
Kuala Lumpur sessions court judge Mat Ghani Abdullah set bail at RM5 million with one surety and fixed May 17 for mention.
He also ordered the accused to surrender his passport to the court.
