PETALING JAYA: A warung operator was charged at the Ayer Keroh sessions court in Melaka with 10 counts of sexual offences, including for unnatural intercourse, having child pornography and sexually assaulting three boys.

Berita Harian reported Yusri Nadin, 57, as pleading not guilty after all the charges were read before judge Azaorni Abd Rahman.

He is charged with committing carnal intercourse against the order of nature against a boy, who was 13 years and eight months old at the time of the incident, at an oil palm plantation in Jalan Padang Lebar 3, Simpang Bekoh, Jasin, at 9pm on Dec 7.

If convicted, he faces imprisonment for a minimum of five years and a maximum of 30, as well as whipping, under Section 377C of the Penal Code.

He also faces nine other charges under the Sexual Offences Against Children Act 2017.

Six of them are under Section 14(s) of the act for physical sexual assault of the victim, as well as two other 13-year-old boys; while two others are for making two of the boys touch each other sexually.

If convicted of these charges, he faces up to 20 years’ imprisonment and whipping.

He is also charged with possessing child pornography in three mobile phones belonging to him, an offence under Section 10 of the same act that carries a maximum prison sentence of five years, or a maximum fine of RM10,000, or both, if convicted.

All the offences were allegedly committed at an oil palm plantation, a rubber plantation and at a supermarket around Simpang Bekoh, Jasin, from the middle of August 2023 until Feb 6, 2024.

Deputy public prosecutor Rashidah Baharom offered bail of RM90,000 for all 10 charges.

However, lawyer Ishak Kari, representing Yusri, pleaded for a lower bail as his client only earned RM2,000 a month, has diabetes and high blood pressure, and is supporting four family members.

The court then allowed bail of RM52,000 for all charges, with the additional condition that he does not disturb the witnesses until the disposal of the case.

He is also required to report himself at a police station once a month and surrender his passport for the court’s safekeeping.

The case will be re-mentioned on March 28 for the handover of documents.
