BAGAN DATOH: Kuala Lumpur High Court judge Datuk Azman Abdullah, who is presiding over the murder trial of deputy public prosecutor Datuk Anthony Kevin Morais, yesterday visited three locations linked to the case.
The three locations are the Hutan Melintang police station, where Morais’ burnt car was kept, an oil palm plantation in Kampung Sungai Samak where Morais’ car was set ablaze and a river in Kuala Selangor where a grinder and Morais’ personal items such as a watch, wallet and ring were disposed.
Azman, accompanied by court staff which included an interpreter, was at the police station with the prosecution team led by DPP Saiful Edris Zainuddin, the defence team and seven suspects in the case.
They were at the police station for about 15 minutes and left for the oil palm plantation before leaving for Kuala Selangor 30 minutes later.
