According to Harian Metro, in the first charge, Rahman and Raihanah, who are a married couple was accused of using the halal logo without the halal certification from the competent authorities on an Isuzu brand truck.

The case was handled by Deputy Public Prosecutor T Ashvini while Rahman and Raihanah were represented by their lawyers Noor Liana Hashim and Lau Kok Guan.

The Deputy Public Prosecutor applied to the court to impose bail of RM50,000 with surety against Rahman and Raihanah, for the second charge.

Ashvini said a high guarantee should be imposed as the case of the halal logo received widespread media coverage and was also discussed in Parliament.

Noor Liana and Lau appealed for the bail to be reduced on the grounds that the company was still operating by having 20 employees. The couple is also bearing four children aged between 10 and 20 years.

The court then allowed the couple to be bailed at RM40,000 each and surety, setting 19 January for re-mention of the case for the submission of documents.
