In the 60th day of the High Court trial of Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu, it was shown that accused political analyst Abdul Razak Abdullah Baginda had made 19 calls and sent 14 short messages to accused Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri between 19 and 30 October 2006. Altantuya was missing and murdered on 19 October 2006. In the same period, Azilah had called Razak 7 times.

An engineer from Maxis Communications Bhd, 38-year-old Goh Peng Chew, told the court that based on records, the following communication attempts were found:

  • 9 October 2006 – Altantuya sent 3 short messages to Razak
  • 18 October 2006 – Azilah called Razak several times and Razak called 11 times and sent 5 short messages to Azliah
  • 19 October 2006 – Azilah called Razak and talked for 2 minutes and Razak sent one short message to Azilah at 7:01pm
  • 21 October 2006 between 1:29am and 1:47am – Razak called at least 10 times to Azilah and talked for about 4 minutes
  • 7 November 2006 – Razak sent 2 short messages to Azilah

Although Goh said he was not aware of the identities of the mobile phone numbers, it was noted that CyberSecurity Malaysia digital forensic head Aswami Fadillah Mohd Ariffin had previously said in court that the phone numbers belonged to the three accused and several other individuals.

CyberSecurity Malaysia digital forensic analyst and prosecution witness Razana Md Salleh said the data in the SIM card of a mobile phone was not changeable by any computer system.

The hearing continues on Monday.
