Altantuya Murder Trial: General Manager Clears Confusion

Shah Alam

Nik Kamarudin Nik Ka from the Celcom Core Network Operations division testified at the High Court during the murder trial of Altantuya Shaariibuu yesterday, confirming the call transaction data of accused Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri.

The 43-year-old general manager said he retraced six transactions that have been challenged on their accuracy. Nik Kamarudin was shown two documents containing data on mobile phone calls and text messages sent by Azilah, which indicated Azilah had been at the murder scene and had been in contact with the two co-accused.

Nik Kamarudin said after his review of the data, he found that six short messages received by Azilah were not in the records extracted by Celcom executive Mohd Firdaous Mohd Omar but were found in the billings record retrieved by Celcom systems analyst Syed Mustaqim bin Syed Yusoff.

He explained that the discrepancies are due to the exchange where the data was retrieved from. On 17 October 2006, five of six short messages involving Azilah’s mobile phone were captured at the Atabara, Kuantan, exchange while the other was at the Semambu exchange.

The trial continues today.
