THE Kuala Lumpur magistrates’ court today acquitted and discharged singer Jason Lo of a drug consumption charge.
Magistrate Mohamad Fared Abdul Latif acquitted Jason Jonathan Lo, 47, who is also a businessman, after finding that the prosecution had failed to establish a prima facie case against the accused.
“Therefore, the accused is acquitted and discharged from the charge without having to enter defence and the (RM2,500) bail will be returned.
“The grounds of judgment will be provided on or before June 30,” said Fared.
Deputy public prosecutor Nur Diana Mohamad Saad prosecuted while Lo was represented by lawyer Hariharan Tara Singh. – Bernama, June 24, 2022.
