Nik Sapeia to be charged

KUALA LUMPUR: Businessman Datuk Nik Sapeia Nik Yusoff (pictured) will be charged Wednesday over the “spray” incident involving former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad in Kota Baru on July 28.

Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail confirmed that they would charge Nik Sapeia and had told him to present himself at the magistrate's court in Kota Baru this morning.

Nik Sapeia, 52, had on two occasions denied any involvement in the spray incident involving Dr Mahathir and several others, including ex-Umno member Datuk Paduka Ibrahim Ali.

In the incident, both Dr Mahathir and Ibrahim were hit by a chemical which was discharged just when the 81-year-old former prime minister was about to address a waiting crowd at the Sultan Ismail Putra Airport near Kota Baru.
