Altantuya Murder Trial: Data Omitted from Azilah’s Phone Records

8 January 2008
Shah Alam

31-year-old Mohd Firdaous Mohd Omar from Celcom’s Special Projects and Investigation Division has admitted in high court yesterday that he had omitted data from his testimony involving calls made from accused Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri mobile phone number. He has been giving his testimony for the past six days in the murder trial of Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu.

He did not include data from the last three pages he had retrieved from the IT billing department dated 21 October 2006. Compared to what Mohd Firdaous testified in court, the original billing document had 10 more transactions dated between 22 to 31 October 2006.

Mohd Firdaous also said that he was unable to determine if the data he had obtained via e-mail was accurate because it came from two different systems and departments in his company. Last Thursday, he told the court that the records could not have been altered although there were discrepancies in call timestamps, duration and location found.

The phone log was from Celcom’s Customer Care Management system, while the billing document was from the IT billing department.

As such, judge Datuk Mohd Zaki Md Yasin said that Mohd Firdaous would be required to return to continue his testimony.

Hearing continues today.
