KUALA LUMPUR: Actor and singer Datuk Ahmad Azhar Osman or Awie, has been ordered to pay RM80,000 to his former wife Rozana Misbun for physically assaulting her.
Rozana was awarded that amount by the Shah Alam Sessions Court on Sept 28, and it comprised RM30,000 general damages and RM50,000 severe damages. Awie will also have to pay her RM10,000 in costs.

On May 7, 2016, Awie’s criminal charge of physically assaulting Rozana was dropped by the Ampang Magistrate’s Court after both parties reached a settlement, and Awie paid a compound of RM10,000 and apologised to Rozana.
At the Ampang Magistrate’s Court on July 4, 2014, Awie pleaded not guilty to a charge of physically assaulting and injuring Rozana at Taman Ukay Bistari, Ukay Perdana, Hulu Klang at 1.30pm on June 2, 2014.
