Court acquits six Mat Rempit of murder

Posted: 29 Apr 2014 06:40 AM PDT

SHAH ALAM: "You have caused your parents untold troubles and to shed tears. And it is your illegal racing which has landed you in court today.

"After this I hope you repent and examine your relationship with God and the human race," High Court Judge Datuk Abdul Alim Abdullah advised six "mat rempit" (illegal racers) before they were released here Tuesday.

Abdul Alim held that the defence had raised a reasonable doubt on the prosecution's case against the six youths charged with the murder of a man three years ago.

The youths, Mohd Ezwan Amanshah, 26, Mazly Sulaiman, 24, Abdul Rahman Abdul Latif, 24, and three teenagers (17 and 18 at the time), who are now 20 and 21, were jointly accused of killing R. Sasikumar, 21, at the Pandamaran Sports Complex in Klang near here at about 3am on Sept 18, 2011.

They were charged under S302 of the Penal Code which provides for the mandatory death sentence, upon conviction.

In his judgement, Abdul Alim said the court believed the defence of Mohd Ezwan, Mazly and Abdul Rahman who had presented notice and witnesses for their alibi of not being at the crime scene.

"As for the fifth and sixth accused, the court finds their defence a mere denial but the element of guilt under S149 of the Penal Code was not proven.

"The court does not believe the fourth accused's defence either but the prosecution failed to challenge it," he said.

Eight prosecution and 11 defence witnesses were called to testify throughout the trial.

The prosecution was conducted by deputy public prosecutor Norhani Muhamad Adzhar, while the youths were represented by lawyers Gerard Lazarus, Tan Choong Hong, Cheng Poh Heng, K.N.Logendran and R.Vijayan. – Bernama

Trader denies murdering French tourist

Posted: 29 Apr 2014 06:01 AM PDT

KUANTAN: Trader Asni Omar has denied that he was the one who murdered French tourist Stephanie Foray, even though he had shown police where her body was located.

In his testimony, Asni, 39, said he had been reluctant to point police to the cave where Foray's body was found due to the implications.

"I tried to buy time by stopping at my mother's house when the police wanted me to lead them to the body.

"I was not willing to show them because of the impact, which is what is happening to me now," he told the High Court on Tuesday.

When asked by his lawyer Datuk Ng See Teong whether he had been ordered by investigating officer Insp Mohd Zairi Badderul to point to the spot, Asni said he had had no choice but to comply.

"I did not want to show them but Insp Zairi said to just do it because nothing would happen," he said.

Asni is charged with murdering Foray, 30, at an unnumbered house in Kampung Tekek, Pulau Tioman, between 8pm on May 10 and noon on May 12, 2011.

Asni said that on Aug 8, 2011, the police had asked him to sign a paper, stating that he would show them the location of Foray's remains.

But that does not mean I killed or hurt her," he stressed.

Asni, who ran a business selling swimming equipment, said he first discovered the body on May 11, 2011, after his elder brother Radzi Omar and one Zulhaili Akash had they stumbled upon it.

He also told the court that he first met Foray on May 10, 2011, when she approached him to rent a room at his house.

Asni said he took Foray to have dinner at a restaurant after she had stored her belongings in his house.

He said that he had wanted to go home soon after dinner to chat with his girlfriend on the telephone. Asni said that Foray had however, wanted to go to Taman Laut and he had taken her and left her there.

"While I was at Taman Laut, I noticed a few students but I am not sure whether they saw me or not," he said.

Asni said he had then gone home, chatted with his girlfriend, and then, fallen off to sleep.

"When I woke up in the morning, I did not notice whether Foray had come back or not," he said.

The trial continues Wednesday.
