Muhammad Izzatul Syafik Mozahari, 29, pleaded not guilty in the Putrajaya Magistrate’s Court to a charge of reckless driving resulting in a fatal road crash that claimed the lives of two motorcyclists and injured seven others. He was charged under Section 41(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987, facing a potential sentence of up to 10 years in prison and a fine not exceeding RM50,000 upon conviction. The judge set bail at RM5,000 with one guarantor and ordered Izzatul to report to the police monthly during the case. The accident occurred during a police outrider rehearsal for Le Tour de Langkawi, involving 14 vehicles, including a lorry laden with sand.
The Land Public Transport Agency (APAD) issued a show-cause letter to the trailer company, with the possibility of license suspension or cancellation under Section 62 of the Land Public Transport Act 2010. Transport Minister Anthony Loke emphasized the stringent legal actions against lorry and trailer drivers for road offenses in the country.
