Singer Cliff Umar pleads guilty to drug possession charge

SHAH ALAM, May 30 — Singer Cliff Umar pleaded guilty to a charge of drug possession, believed to be heroin, at the Magistrate’s Court today.

The plea by the 42-year-old, whose real name is Abdullah Umar Joseph, was recorded in the presence of Magistrate Sasha Diana Sabtu.

The popular singer from the reality entertainment programme GV7 or Gegar Vaganza was charged with possessing 0.39g of heroin at Persiaran Kewajipan in Subang Jaya at 3.30pm on May 26 (Sunday).

During the proceeding, Deputy Public Prosecutor Annur Athirah Amran appealed for a new date to hear the chemistry report and urged bail to be set at RM6,000 with one surety.

However, Cliff’s lawyer Sallehuddin Salam pleaded for a lower bail since his client has to support his wife and four school-going children and the fact that income of entertainer in the music and entertainment industry was not fixed.

The court later set bail at RM3,300 with one surety and fixed July 31 as the date for re-mention of the chemistry report.
