Altantuya Murder Trial: Naked When Blown Up

28 February 2008
Shah Alam

Forensic consultant Dr Mohd Shah Mahmood from the Kuala Lumpur Hospital continued his testimony in the High Court trial of the murder of Altantuya Shaariibuu yesterday, indicating that the Mongolian woman might have been naked when she was blown up at the crime scene near Puncak Alam and Puncak Perdana.

He said this because there were no traces of fibre found when he went to inspect the area twice in November 2006. He had went there twice because he told investigating officer Assistant Superintendent Tonny Lunggan that the bone fragments that Dr Mohd Shah recovered at the site during his first visit was inadequate to form a complete human skeleton.

Lunggan had given Dr Mohd Shah 34 packets of bone fragments at the mortuary of the Forensic Department, which Dr Mohd Shah used to piece together and carry out examinations, with the assistance of forensic anthropologist Dr Nurliza Abdullah. The bone fragments were then handed over to the Chemistry Department.

He said that even after the second examination on 9 November 2006, the bone fragments were not enough to form a complete human skeleton.

The trial continues tomorrow.
