PETALING JAYA, July 11 (Bernama) -- Three handball athletes of the 2013 Malaysia Games (Sukma) were charged separately in three Sessions Courts with the rape of a chaperone last Thursday.
Adib Adha Ismail, 18, Megat Farzeril Faiz Megat Razali, 19, and Mohammad Shaizzad Md Shafie, 19, pleaded not guilty to the charge of raping the 20-year-old woman in a room at Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) in Serdang between 4 am and 4.10 am on July 4.
They face a maximum jail term of 20 years and whipping upon conviction.
The three courts allowed the athletes to be released on RM10,000 bail each in one surety. Adib Adha and Mohammad Shaizzad, however, are required to report to a police station once a month.
The courts set Aug 20 for mention of the cases.
