Both offences were framed under Section 328 of the Penal Code which provides a prison sentence of up to 10 years and can also be fined, if found guilty.

Judge Azman allowed Mou bail of RM6,000 with one surety. She was also ordered to surrender her passport to the court and not intimidate witnesses.
