Altantuya Murder Trial: DNA Blood Sample Card Not Identifiable

20 November 2007
Shah Alam

35-year-old Dr Noor Azleen Ayob collected DNA samples from murder victim Altantuya Shaariibuu’s mother in March 2007, but could not confirm if the fast-track analysis card exhibited in court was the same one that she had used to store four blood droplets from her.

She went to Ulanbator, Mongolia, on 13 March 2007 with DSP Gan Tack Guan to obtain the blood samples from Altansetseg Sanjaa. However, Dr Noor Azleen did not make any markings on the card and thus could not identify the card now. Later, she said she recognized the card based on the pattern of the stains and the envelope in which the card was stored.

On 10 November 2006, Dr Noor Azleen also collected blood samples from Altantuya’s father, Setev Shaariibuu, at Eastin Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.

Aswami Fadillah Mohd Ariffin of CyberSecurity’s Malaysia Digital Forensic Department told the court yesterday that he had analysed the telephone calls made between Abdul Razak Baginda, Azilah, Sirul, Azilah’s former girlfriend Lance Corporal Rohaniza Roslan, private investigators P. Balasubramaniam and Suras Kumar, DSP Musa Mohd Safri and Altantuya.

Based on the logs of the telecommunications providers, he said he was not sure if the records were accurate and that it was possible for their computer systems to be tampered with.

Hearing continues today.
