Giving his testimony as the 30th witness in the murder trial of Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu was 48-year Wong Kong Yong, a document examiner with the Chemistry Department in Petaling Jaya. He said that the note found in accused Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri’s bag on 12 November 2006 was written by political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda.

In the note were details such as the name of Abdul Razak’s father, Datuk Abdullah Malim Baginda, his home address in Damansara Heights and the hotel room number where Altantuya stayed before her death. Wong found 18 areas of similarities when he compared the handwriting on the note with samples taken from Abdul Razak and two of his notebooks that were seized from his office.

Thus, Wong told the court that he believed that the notes found in Azilah’s office were written by Abdul Razak.

Chief Inspector Ahmad Abu Bakar, aged 35, told the court that he was instructed by DSP Gan Tack Guan to obtain samples of Abdul Razak’s handwriting in the Bukit Aman police headquarters on 14 and 15 November 2006 for analysis purposes. All four handwritten documents were then submitted to the Chemistry Department by investigating officer ASP Tonny Lunggan on 17 November 2006.

Lunggan also sent three more sets of documents on 26 June 2007 to the department, including three Hotel Malaya sheets, a plain sheet of paper, a Hotel Malaya envelope, a handwritten sheet of paper, and a Hotel Malaya letterhead with handwriting. These were believed to have been written by murder victim Altantuya.

The trial continues today.
