A 43-YEAR-OLD man claimed trial yesterday over charges of possessing a sharp metal object shaped like a katana and using it to attack someone.

Shamsul Bahri Abdullah is accused of wielding the weapon on May 12 this year near Jalan McArthur in Bandar Seri Begawan.

The court document filed by Deputy Public Prosecutor Mohammad Danial DSP Hj Kifrawi said Shamsul is accused of using the katana to hit Rosmeni Hj Matasan on his left arm near the Abdul Razak Holdings multi-storey car park.

A further mention of the case is scheduled to be heard on June 22 to set the trial date before an assigned magistrate.
