Court to hear ex-policemen's appeal over Mongolian woman's murder
PUTRAJAYA: The Court of Appeal will convene for three days from June 10 to hear the appeal by two former Special Action Unit personnel convicted and sentenced to death for murdering Mongolian woman Altantuya Shaariibuu.
Lawyer Kitson Foong, representing Corporal Sirul Azhar Umar, said Court of Appeal deputy registrar Darmafikri Abu Adam informed the prosecution and defence that Court of Appeal President Tan Sri Raus Sharif had given instruction that the appeal be heard during that period even though it was a court vacation.
He also told reporters that the prosecution and defence were required to file their written submissions two weeks before June 10. The matter came up before Darmafikri yesterday for case management.
Deputy Public Prosecutor Tengku Intan Suraya Tengku Ismail appeared for the prosecution while lawyer Datuk Hazman Ahmad represented Chief Insp Azilah Hadri.
In 2009, the High Court in Shah Alam sentenced Sirul Azhar, 39, and Azilah, 34, to death after finding them guilty murdering Altantuya, 28.
The offence was committed at Mukim Bukit Raja in Shah Alam between 10pm on Oct 19, 2006, and 1am the following day.
Former political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda who was charged with abetting the policemen was acquitted without his defence being called.
