Nik Sapeia sues cops and Govt over his arrest

KOTA BARU: Datuk Nik Sapeia Nik Yusof, currently charged with inflicting harm to former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and three others, has sued the police and the Government, alleging them as having evil intentions and ruining his honour when handling the case.

Nik Sapeia, 53, accompanied by his two lawyers Zainal Abidin Mustafa and Mohd Ilias Mohd Noor, filed two writs at the High Court here yesterday.

The businessman named investigating officer Asst Supt Baharin Mohd Noh, Kelantan police chief Datuk Zulkifli Abdullah and the Government as the first, second and third defendants respectively.

In the writ, he claimed that the three defendants had wrongly detained him and denied him of his freedom rights as provided by the Constitution.

Nik Sapeia had on Aug 9 pleaded not guilty in the magistrate’s court to the charge of inflicting harm to Dr Mahathir and three others by spraying a substance believed to be pepper. – Bernama
