KOTA KINABALU: A 24-year-old man charged with sexually assaulting a teenage girl will know his fate on April 26. Sessions Court Judge Noor Hafizah Mohd Salim fixed the decision date for Nurfazzrynn Fazir after his defence closed its case.

Julmin Talagi, Leonardus Bernadus Dedi, Edmar Martin, Junatan Amzah and Saini Saidal pleaded guilty separately Noor Hafizah.

The men, except Junatan and Saini due to their age and gender, were also ordered to be caned once.

The court heard that the six were arrested after they failed to produce their travel documents during operation here in Penampang and Papar between March 2 and March 21.
