Altantuya Murder Trial: Amidon Identified Azilah and Azhar on CCTV

4 December 2007
Shah Alam

56-year-old superintendent Amidon Anan continued his testimony in High Court yesterday, stating that he could positively identify Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri at Hotel Malaya. Victim Altantuya Shaariibuu had stayed in that hotel last year before she disappeared and was murdered.

The current head of Bukit Aman’s Crime Scene Investigation department said Azilah was his subordinate previously and had met him in several robbery and murder cases.

Amidon had spent five hours watching the closed-circuit television recording obtained from Hotel Malaya’s cameras. He told the court that he could identify Azilah and jointly-accused Corporal Sirul Azhar Umar. The recording was dated 18 October 2006 between 4:50pm and 5pm, a day before Altantuya was murdered.

When Amidon was cross-examined by counsel Datuk Hazman Ahmad, who is representing Azilah, and counsel Kamarul Hisham Kamaruddin, who is representing Azhar, he agreed that his identification was inconclusive as he admitted he was not a forensic video anthropologist.
