Deputy Public Prosecutor Nurliyana Mohd Jafri offered RM50,000 bail with one surety against the accused.
Lawyer Amer Hamzah Arshad who represented Mak applied for reduced bail because the purpose of bail is to ensure the presence of the accused in court.
“My client appeared in court today to be charged and he is not a ‘flight risk,’” he said and also proposed bail of RM10,000 with a surety where the surety was the accused’s wife.
