SINGAPORE: One of the youths accused of rioting with a deadly weapon in the Orchard Cineleisure slashing case now faces an additional charge.
Twenty-three-year-old Mizra Abdul Azman was on Tuesday charged with being a member of a secret society since end-2009.
If convicted, he faces a jail term of up to three years and S$3,000 fine.
This is on top of his original charge of rioting with a parang on June 15 this year at Orchard Cineleisure at about 9pm.
Mizra allegedly committed the offence with four others. They are said to have hurt 20-year-old Wilson Siau by slashing him with the parang.
If found guilty of rioting, Mizra faces a maximum punishment of 10 years and caning.
His case will be mentioned again on July 23.
