Papagomo pleads guilty to assault of foreign worker
The controversial blogger, whose real name is Wan Mohd Azri Wan Deris, nodded when asked if he understood the nature of all three charges before Magistrate Husna Dzulkifly here on Friday.
Court proceedings have been adjourned until 2.30pm as technical difficulties were encountered when trying to replay a video of the alleged assault.
He was charged under Section 323 of the Penal Code, which carries a maximum of one years' jail, a fine or both if convicted.
He was represented by lawyer Azizzul Shariman Mat Yusoff, while Deputy Public Prosecutor Ahmad Zikri Jaafar acted for the prosecution.
It was earlier reported that Wan Azri had assaulted a man believed to be a foreign worker in a four-minute video clip that went viral on social media.
He claimed that the man had harassed two of his younger sisters and two of their friends.
