>KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA - Watching another woman flirting with her boyfriend provoked her, actress Nur Fazura Sharifuddin admitted in the magistrate's court here. However, Nur Fazura told the court that she had approached Geraldine Mariana Wong, 33, her boyfriend's ex-girlfriend, to seek an explanation over Wong's behaviour and not out of jealousy.
"She was trying to seduce him by touching his shoulder, hair and cheeks for around an hour," said Nur Fazura when cross-examined by prosecuting officer R. Rukumar.
She said her then boyfriend of four months (Ahmad Razman Ahmad Razali) had explained that he was trying to calm Wong as she was drunk and trying to create trouble.
Nur Fazura is charged with assaulting Wong with a high-heeled shoe at Luna Bar at the Pacific Regency Hotel and Apartments in Jalan Kia Peng about 1.20am on Dec 19, 2004.
If convicted, she is liable to a year's jail or RM2,000 fine.
When questioned if she had filed a police report after the incident, Nur Fazura said she did not but was called by the investigating officer four days later to provide a statement.
Rukumar then produced a police report lodged by her at the Dang Wangi police station on Dec 20, 2004.
During re-examination by her counsel, Fakhrul Azman Abu Hassan, Nur Fazura clarified that the report lodged on Dec 20 was on a death threat made by Wong against her, and not regarding the assault.
"I made the report after Geraldine threatened me saying: 'You are going to be dead by tomorrow'," she said.
Fakhrul told magistrate Aizatul Akmal Maharani that the defence would call three more witnesses.
Aizatul postponed trial to March 27.
