Altantuya Murder Trial: Mobile Phone Call Locations Challenged

20 December 2007
Shah Alam

The lawyer for accused Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri, J. Kuldeep, has contended in High Court yesterday that his client was not in Puncak Alam on the night when murder victim Altantuya Shaariibuu went missing and where she was blown to pieces.

Kuldeep put it to 30-year-old Celcom special projects and investigations division executive Mohd Firdaous Mohd Omar that Azilah was with his current girlfriend Norazila Baharuddin on 19 October 20076 at 9:41pm when a phone call was made to accused and political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda from the “019” number registered under Norazila’s name. This call was supposedly answered by Lance Corporal Rohaniza Roslan, who was the girlfriend of Azilah at that time.

Kuldeep suggested that the couple were at Bukit Aman and not at the Jalan Duta toll plaza, contrary to the Celcom transaction logs derived by Mohd Firdaous. At 10:43pm, they were heading to Wangsa Maju and were along the Middle Ring Road 2 in Batu Caves and Jalan Kuching back from Wangsa Maju at 11:28pm, not at Puncak Perdana as the Celcom records show. At the latter time, a phone call was made to Rohaniza from the “019” number.

Mohd Firdaous disagreed with the assertions presented.

The trial continues on 2 January 2008.
