Inconsistencies in Police Report Caused Slight Confusion in Altantuya Trial

Two original copies of a police report made by ASP Zulkarnain Samsudin after he had interrogated accused Corporal Sirul Azhar Umar last year caused some confusion when the court discovered some details were not consistent.

This was detected when Azhar’s counsel Kamarul Hisham Kamaruddin made a reference to the report and found that trial judge Justice Mohd Zaki Md Yasin had different details in his copy. There were a total of five inconsistencies.

Zulkarnain then clarified the matter when he explained that one was the original version of the report which he had lodged at 2pm on 7 November 2006 after he had interrogated and obtained new information from Azhar. The other report contained amendments to the original report.

He made the amendments in the electronic reporting system at the IT department of the Bukit Aman station at 7pm the same day.

The judge adjourned the trial to Wednesday.
